    There is a near 0 chance he's ready on Opening Day.

    OTOH, that's what a SS who's going to be a 3B looks like.

    It's been way to quiet...way to quiet. Expect something to go down either some releases or maybe deals. I like when it's quiet and then someone is a new CUB.

    im fine with one contracts and signing all the scrubs BUT that can't be the only signing we do.... we need to lock up a couple guys for the future this offseason IMO.... who? idk a few pitchers could be nice on 3 or 4 year deals...a trade for a 3B would be amazing... blah blah blah...

    The Cubs could be dark horses on Bourn.

    Holy Cow. Didn't see that coming. Seems like he fits the OBP, base-running, and defensive abilities that this FO desires, but I just think he's going to be too expensive for what he'll provide.

    Thanks for the info. Do you think they will be players condtionally, ie if he is available at what they consider to be good value, or do you think they will make a pretty strong push?

    Any idea what they keep discussing? Is that Granderson speculation just a pipe dream or could it actually have some legs?

    Is there a list of which FA's former teams will receive compensation when they are signed? I am still a bit hazy on the new compensation process, I believe our 1st round pick is protected (top 10?) if we sign certain FA's, and I'm wondering where Bourn would be on that list.

    Agreed so do I, but it would contrary to everything else that has been done recently. I will be cautiously optimistic on this one since I don't believe they want to spend any money right now.
