Predict the Cubs' offseason!

Hey party people. With the GM meetings underway and a new manager in place, I expect the hot stove to start heating up. How's about we have a contest to see who can best predict what the Cubs do leading up to spring training.

A few ground rules:

1) Make five predictions that can be either FA signings or trades.

2) Feel free to select moves even if you think one will negate another. For instance, if you think the Cubs would sign either Corey Hart or Michael Morse, you can list them both. But list the one most likely to be acquired first.

3) If you think the Cubs will sign a type of player (e.g. backup catcher) but don't know who he will be, don't just list "Backup catcher". Feel free to do that in a note after your list, but keep it out of your top five.

4) Note that these are moves that will only cover the offseason, and not trades that would happen in 2014.

All good? Here's my list.

1. Josh Johnson

2. Michael Morse

3. Corey Hart

4. Masahiro Tanaka

5. Phil Hughes

I'll predict that the Cubs find buy-low guys for the backup catcher and the bullpen.
