Cubs Rumors: Chicago offers Jon Lester contract 'north of ' $135M

The Chicago Cubs are a team on the brink of being competitive. They have a great lineup, albeit a young lineup, and showed that they can hit with anyone in baseball last season. The only thing they are lacking lies in the starting rotation. Chicago has been associated with many of the big name starters on the market and now have reportedly made an offer to Jon Lester.#456422556...

Cubs reportedly offer Jon Lester more than $135 million

Let me start this off by saying I like Jon Lester and think he’s an excellent pitcher, but if this latest report is true, Theo Epstein and the Chicago Cubs have officially lost their minds. A report on Tuesday claims the Cubs have offered the free agent left-hander a six-year deal worth “north of” $135 million. Lester is the top lefty on the market this winter and I understand...

What do the Chicago Cubs do if they strike out in free agency?

At the time of this writing, we’re not too deep into the 2014-15 Major League Baseball offseason quite yet. The Winter Meetings have yet to transpire. There are still multiple marquee free agents available out on the market, and still major trade chips that have yet to move. However, for the Chicago Cubs, it would appear that the clock is ticking on their opportunity to make something...

Cubs 40-Man Roster Moves

The Cubs have put C.J. Edwards on the 40-man and that is the extent of their Rule 5 deadline roster moves. You can check out AZ Phil's full list of Rule 5 eligibles if you wish, but I don't see any obvious names that will get selected. Maybe Zach Cates or Ivan Pineyro or Starling Peralta, but there's certainly no one on there that folks should all be too worried about...

Chicago Cubs: New free agent and trade targets

Following the Toronto Blue Jays’ acquisition of three-time All-Star Russell Martin, the Cubs are beginning to find new offseason targets. Martin and the Blue Jays agreed to a backloaded 5-year, $82 million ($16.4 million per year) contract, which would pay the backstop $20 million during his age 34, 35, and 36 seasons.

MMO Fan Shot: A Case For Pursuing Cubs SS Addison Russell

An MMO Fan Shot by Marc Miller There has been much discussion and debate about whether the Cubs and Mets will match up for a deal this winter.  Many say it would be a natural fit as each team’s strength is the other team’s weakness, which seems to make for a good match. Early reports have been that a deal between the teams is unlikely because of substantially differing views...

Cubs trade Vizcaino for La Stella

For those of you keeping track, that brings Paul Maholm‘s total value to the Cubs to Tommy La Stella, but we had to throw in some IFA slot money (we got one back to make the numbers work). The trade makes sense to me. Arodys might have a future as a power reliever, but that’s an area the Cubs are flush with. The Cubs are also flush with middle infielders, but you’re deluding...

Ever since the Ricketts family bought the team from Tribune owner Sam Zell, the fans were forced to rethink how a sustainable, winning team should be built after having been fed the quick fix solutions...

Wrigley Field Bleachers Torn Down As Stadium Undergoes Renovations (Photos)
