    Concerning draft signings, joeby231 was able to report when players were scheduled to be in Chicago to take physicals and/or report to Arizona. Both Marlin Bystro and ABTY7 were able to provided similar corroboration, but that information is tremendously difficult to come by unless you have a source.

    Here's joeby's only post where he directly mentions Cespedes, 2/12/12:

    This isn’t an either/or scenario regarding Cespedes and Soler. Soler is a done deal. It amazes me to see everyone’s take on a player they have never play, including myself, this guy has been scouted heavily for years, so I trust our front office and believe the Cubs are the frontrunners. Also RIP Whitney Houston, never a big pop music fan but she had staggering talent and died way to young.

    I can't wait till we get some Bourn news one way or another. This one has been tough to gauge and I'm very interested to see how it turns out.

    No, not tweets. They're comments belonging to a member of the SB Nation sites. If joeby231 has a Twitter handle, then I don't know it. He was asked if he had an account at least once before and never responded.

    As an aside, and he could have been joking about the second part, he wrote the following in respect to Diaz:

    Seems like Red Sox and Dodgers are heavily involved but the Concepcion signing leads to another get.

    ...

    Concepcion is the Cubs Cuban liaison.

    No reason not to get this guy then. On a side note, I wonder if there is anyone left that we can even spend our 700k on. (that's worth it that is)

    I personally believe that Towers destroyed any leverage he ever had with regards to Upton. They clearly don't want the guy and theres no way he'd fetch what he could have a year ago, even disregarding his performance

    We had 450k of it spent, but they guy was killed. There are always pop up guys and we have until July 1st to sign. Just read yesterday about a lefty that throws 94 and reminds some of Pettitte in some ways. He's available now. Pretty solid OFer still out there too. The Cards just had a 900k signing within the last month, fairly rare, for this time of year. But with the age of these kids, big gains get made, and players stocks go way up.

    Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Cubs will consider trade offers for Matt Garza if the righty shows in spring training that his elbow is healthy.
    With the signings of Edwin Jackson, Carlos Villanueva, Scott Baker and Scott Feldman, the Cubs suddenly have some rotation depth, which could allow them to deal Garza for help elsewhere. The team has mentioned signing Garza to an extension in the past, but they might decide that getting prospects for him during spring training or at the trade deadline would be the better course of action. The veteran righty is coming back from a stress reaction in his right elbow, but he's been cleared to resume throwing and the Cubs anticipate him being ready for Opening Day.

    Maybe with the recent rumblings I've been reading about Garza and Ellsbury, Theo can convince his old pal Cherington to agree to a swap centered around the two. The Cubs could offer DeJesus to fill in for Ellsbury in Boston in 2013 and toss in Brett Jackson (Or Matt Szczur if need be) as a possible longterm replacement.

    This, of course, would all be contingent on Ellsbury agreeing to an extension.

    CF Ellsbury
    SS Castro
    1B Rizzo
    LF Soriano
    3B Stewart
    C Castillo/Navarro
    RF Schierholtz
    2B Barney

    Samardzija
    Jackson
    Feldman
    Villanueva
    Wood
    (Baker)

    That team should float along until the deadline at just below .500, at which point all 6 of your starting pitchers (sans Shark maybe) should be trade bait for younger pieces. Stewart will eventually be supplanted by Baez and/or one of the 3 V's (Vitters/Valbuena/Villanueva). Schiertholtz should be a decent placeholder until another core outfielder is signed/traded for or when Almora/Soler is ready. I'd trade Barney if it meant landing a superstar type player, but for now I don't mind him hitting 8th with excellent defense.

    My bad if this has already been suggested/discussed. I've only skimmed through these threads.

    I like Ellsbury. 0% chance he signs an extension before he hits FA.

    Garza, DeJesus and Jackson for a year of Ellsbury in which we won't compete (because there is literally not a chance he signs an extension) Nope...
