    Porcello's groundball rate combined with the Cubs' defense could be a great match. Porcello also has some red flags. Honestly, I just really want to see the Cubs sell high on Barney.

    Smyly btw wouldn't be arb eligible until 2015 and is under team control until 2019. Porcello OTOH is arb eligible this offseason and under team control until 2016.

    Honestly, outside of Johnson and Bourn, and to a certain extent Villanueva all of that is crap on a stick.
    We've reached that point... Minor league deal(s) only for a McClellan and Lopez...

    I hope we could possibly getbourn for a low cost. Not a big fan of his but if we can get him at less than his worth, you have to sign him.

    I don't see a ton of options for a Barney trade right now. Disappointed the A's signed Nakajima.

    Lowe lost around 3mph off his fastball last season. Was that injury related? He suffered some form of abdominal strain in late June, but his velocity was down for most of the year.

    Yeah. But it kind of seems like the team reached that point at the beginning of the offseason, outside of Anibal Sanchez.

    Even from someone who expected a fairly mum offseason, this offseason has even been without a promising trade to this point. They've got time, but this has been even more mum than last season, which at least brought us Rizzo.

    They've got plenty of time. The Rizzo trade wasn't made until after New Years last year. I still think they make at least one significant move before spring training.

    Bourne would likely be a prelude to Soriano or Dejesus getting traded correct?

    I keep hearing Texas or Seattle may be interested in Soriano, anything to this or just speculation?

    Definitely down for Villanueva, Not sure where Johnson fits in but I like him. Anything else on JP Howell?

    I feel like there is a trade in the near future.
