    He played baseball? I knew him from Dancing with the Stars.

    A little surprised Cubs exercised their option on Jose Quintana today. $11.5M for a 1.2 WAR guy....

    From Sahadev Sharma, Cubs beat writer for the Athletic in his latest piece, “ Brother, can you spare a dime for the Cubs bullpen? How about second base?” (that’s seriously the headline):


    “This two-year non-spending trend has become a bit embarrassing for such a big-market team. It’s one thing for the Cubs to not throw their financial weight around during the winter. But to miss out on complementary pieces because the budget is so tight that upgrading the team requires trading players who make significant money? It’s not only laughable, it’s unacceptable.”

    Cubs have considered/discussed Jacoby Ellsbury. Probably a long shot but Cubs have a leadoff issue and Ellsbury is a surprise free agent after being released. JE hasn’t played in 2 years so before moving forward they’d want to gauge his interest/mindset.

    The cubs should pencil him in as their starting centerfielder for the next three years.

    BREAKING: Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant has lost his grievance against the team seeking an extra year of service, sources familiar with the ruling tell ESPN.

    might be time for the cubbies to give heyward an extension, even though that beautiful contract still has four years left on it.

    also, theo needs to lock up tyler chatwood before he becomes a free agent at the end of this year. can't let a talent like that just walk out the door.

    C'mon.. Cubs fans have always longed for another 107 years of not winning the WS. Only Bengals fans can compete in incompetence. Just 55 short years to wait to match em!
