If Javier Baez has a higher defensive ceiling than Starlin Castro, then the latter needs to look at moving positions.
Jeff Samardzija wants to show he can be consistent for an entire season.
All we know is Rick Renteria is an optimist — which may be all the Cubs need.
Wins often equate to power in sports, but that’s not all.
Javier Baez still needs to work on his defense and become more refined before becoming a regular at Wrigley.
Jeff Samardzija would like to remain a Cub, but a gap remains in contract negotiations.
The young hitters give reason for hope, but quality young arms aren’t arriving anytime soon.
Many believe/hope the Cubs compete for a playoff spot in 2015. With that actually being pretty unrealistic it’s the wrong time not to shop a soon to be 29 year old starting pitcher.
I’d be a hypocrite if I called for Incognito to be denied work in a trade that he has skill for.
On the surface, it would appear the Cubs settled with Rick Renteria as their new manager.
The Cubs will name Padres bench coach Rick Renteria as their next manager on Thursday, succeeding Dale Sveum.
The Cubs’ brass headed out West on Monday to interview Padres bench coach Rick Renteria for their manager position.
With Girardi’s unsurprising snub in mind, my concern is that by firing Dale Sveum a year before his contract ended, Theo Epstein & Co. have really stepped in it.
To his credit, Theo Epstein has never claimed to be the smartest guy in the room, let alone in baseball.
