The offseason can be a little boring when your favorite team isn't expected to make many moves. The Cubs aren't expected to do much more than deal one or two unfavored players, maybe sign a low-cost free agent in January or February, and swap a few minor prospects to balance rosters.
But there's always a slim chance of a surprise. Rather than predicting specific moves, I'm interested in knowing which category of deal people think is actually possible. Please respond to the poll below.
Which of these types of moves do you think the Cubs might make this week?
Trade away a player making more than $10M a year (91 votes)
Sign a free agent for an annual salary of > $10M (9 votes)
Trade one of the top several prospects (Vitters, Castro, Cashner, J. Jackson) (37 votes)
Deal for a big-name #1 or #2 starting pitcher (6 votes)
Make any trade of major leaguers within their own division (8 votes)
