Steve Garvey almost was a Cub?


If you click on the link, it takes you to an archived newspaper article from late 1982 where the Chicago Cubs pursued then-free agent first-baseman Steve Garvey. Apparently, Bill Buckner would have reluctantly moved to left-field to make room for Garvey. Oh, how history would have changed, though! Personally, I respected Steve Garvey as a baseball player and think a case could be made for him going into the Hall of Fame. However, I have no respect for him as a human being. And I still get angry when I think about that homerun he hit off Lee Smith with that image of him raising his fist in the air.

Jair Jurrjens on the Block


Should the Cubs make a play to trade for Jurrjens? Is he too big of an injury risk? If they do trade for Jurrjens, who do the Cubs give up in return? I believe the Cubs should try to trade for him. We definitely need the pitching, but I'm not sure what pieces would be required to get him.

Chicago Sun-Times: Cubs scouting Mets prospects


"The Cubs, sources say, have been doing their homework on three key Mets prospects -- left-hander Robert Carson and right-handers Kyle Allen and Jeurys Familia. " If we got those 3 pitchers, i'd be really happy. Familia would be the centerpiece prospect, but all 3 are pretty highly ranked in the Mets system. I believe #9, #13, #23. What do you guys think?
