2011 Winter Meetings

World Series Game 4: Chicago White Sox v Houston Astros

Schuster: So Long Mark Buehrle

With all the rumors coming into the Winter Meetings concerning the Cubs & White Sox, who would have thought the biggest story for Chicago was someone leaving it. The Cubs still make a minor, and I emphasize a minor, deal before they leave town while the Sox are done here.

Schuster: Cubs Quiet So Far But Could Be Closing In On Deals

Are the Cubs closing in some kind of deals? General Manager Jed Hoyer indicated that they are, “We’ve been real busy talking to teams and agents. It’s been really productive and hopefully that will leads to us getting some players before we leave these meetings”.

Williams said he doesn’t anticipate trading any other pitchers on his current roster although that could change if the right deal came along. Williams said he just hasn’t received back the players he is looking for.

Schuster: Santo Gets In, Minoso Has To Wait

The city of Chicago dominated the opening of baseball’s winter meetings. The first thing on MLB’s agenda was the announcement of the Veteran’s Committee on who was going into the Hall of Fame. The announcement came early in the morning with former Cub Ron Santo getting in while former Sox player Minnie Minoso fell short.
