Although the Cubs didn’t make any kind of significant splash in free agency, they’re also not viewing the current roster as a finished product, writes Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times. Part of the team’s lack of spending stems from a desire to make sure there are ample resources in place this summer to address in-season needs via the trade market. “We don’t know what it’s going to be, but certainly there’s going to be a major focus to make sure we’re in position to improve the team in the middle of the season,” said general manager Jed Hoyer of potential summer activity.
Obviously we want bullpen help, everyone wants bullpen help every year, but I also think they need an OF and maybe a starting MIF if Zobrist is out. Preferably the OF mashes and can handle CF, which sounds alot like Mitch Haniger.
Thoughts on Andrus from the Rangers? DeShield Jr. as a buy low 4th OF? I want a SP, still the same guy preferably but would not mind more names
