Cub Tracks Is Non-Tendered?

Tom Pennington

Last night was the deadline to non-tender eligible players. I didn't receive a contract offer in the mail from Al, so I assume I'm on the chopping block. BCB will have all the tender and not so tender(ed) coverage. Cub Tracks loves wacky trade talk and agrees that Chris Sale would look great in Cubbie Blue. And we're also myth busting: not all snowflakes are different!

Here's to bidding adieu to Dioner and welcoming back Darnell and others.

  • Some, including Al, have written about why/whether Greg Maddux should be a unanimous choice for the Hall of Fame. Turns out that fans are even more picky, with 30 percent of them saying Mad Dog shouldn't even get in on the first ballot.
  • The author of this article admits it is just for fun: thinking up creative three-team trades. But I assume all (or at least most) of you would be on board with his idea for the Cubs in a deal with the cross-town White Sox and the New York Yankees. The Cubs would acquire pitching ace Chris Sale (obviously from the Sox and signed through 2017 with another pair of club option years to perhaps the most team-friendly extension in baseball) and young-ish hurler David Phelps (from the Yanks) while dealing away C.J. Edwards and Jorge Soler (to the Sox) and Mike Olt and Dan Vogelbach (to the Yanks). Uh, where do I sign?

  • Mark Gonzales answers questions in a mailbag, which is inexplicably an article that requires site registration. I haven't, and likely won't, register, so I don't know whether the mailbag is worth opening for those of you who have registered.
