    The coverage is pretty extensive for every team. What you see here are the more popular articles but Cubs players come up all the time in smaller articles. When you subscribe, you also get a digest...

    Or have La Stella try his hand at 2nd and move Baez to left field and keep the outfield platoon. I totally agree that Denorfia, if he has a mild rebound season, is the better plan. His batting...

    Andrew McCutchen has alluded to the fact that he was happy for the security and to play for the Pirates and that factored into signing the extension that he agreed to with the Pirates. His contract...

    It's a toss-up for me. La Stella is a below average runner and defender (at second base) but at least he can work a count and hit some singles. Drew is the better defender by far and possibly a...

    Zobrist played 888 innings last season at 2nd base and short stop, his 2 primary positions at this point. I just don't see a lot of value in trading for 1 year of a player whose primary positions are...

    I like picking up the Adron Collider as a depth guy. It's possible he's just never had enough time at the MLB level to make any sort of adjustment.

    When don't we?

    I'm all for giving away any numbers that aren't retired. A lot of the guys who have worn 8 have made me cringe but they've earned the right to wear whatever number the team will let...

    Fixing their farm system is said to be one of the top priorities of John Hart. This would certainly do a little to help them.

    They can use a stopgap at 2nd without rushing Peraza. Under Wren,...

    The Nats do have one of the best pitching prospects in baseball in Giolito. But he is still a ways off.

    I'd take Zimmerman, too. His extension would be expensive but you'd have a whole year to work with him on it.
  12. Greinke is a better pitcher but he signed before...

    Greinke is a better pitcher but he signed before the 2013 season and will make 26.5 AAV going forward. He also had a draft pick attached. Lester doesn't have compensation attached and the price for...
  13. He's more like Altuve light with the hit tool but...

    He's more like Altuve light with the hit tool but he'll take a walk. His defense is below average at second base. He's a fringe major league player if he isn't hitting at least in the upper .280's....

    The Wells extension was a completely different front office. They are really different now.

    Not only do I agree with this sentiment, they are so different that it's really hard to hold them up against each other and make a comparison.

    I'm starting to wonder if Lester is looking at upward up 175/7 if Boston really opened the bidding at 120/6. That assumes he has more than a couple serious bidders.

    I would hate if Shields is the best pitcher they can sign but I'd take it if Lester gets an absurd offer from the Red Sox. As much as it's time for the Cubs to spend money when they need to, it's not...

    Yeah, Russell put on weight to try to increase his power but then lost it when it moved him off shortstop.

    Gammons is a huge homer for the Red Sox (Remember he suggested the Cubs give up their top prospect for signing Epstein). I'm sure that has something to do with it.

    Avila is not an upgrade over Wellington Castillo. Look at his numbers from the last couple seasons. He's not thought of as a good pitch framer even though his defense on batted balls appears to be...

    They are owned by Rogers Communications which is like the AT&T of Canada. Their owners have a ton of money.

    Either the Braves are trading everyone or they just got a raw deal. Miller's pretty good and cost-controlled but Heyward still has a great ceiling considering his glove, OBP, running skills and his...

    Castro is seen as a shortstop. The Phillies and Braves have shortstops that aren't going anywhere. They will hold onto hope that they can draw Bryant in a trade. There's no reason for them to take a...
