Hopefully the last Hershiser to the Cubs post

As the fanposts on Jake Peavy are lengthlier than the federal complaint against Blago, I thought it might be fun to revisit Cubs rumors that never came to fruition.

About 10-12 years ago, Orel Hershiser was rumored to be coming to the Cubs to join the starting rotation.  It never happened.  In the mid-1990's, Jeff Torborg was supposedly the Cubs' manager in waiting, although that was mainly Mike Murphy touting that one, so . . . .

Then, of course, we have last year's endless Brian Roberts stories.  So, in an effort to stave off some of the frustration that some of you are feeling from all these Peavy posts -- who else has some memories of Cub moves that were absolutely going to happen -- until they didn't happen?

This is a FanPost and does not necessarily reflect the views of SB Nation or Al Yellon, managing editor (unless it's a FanPost posted by Al). FanPost opinions are valued expressions of opinion by passionate and knowledgeable baseball fans.
