From Comcast SportsNet
- Patrick Mooney appeared on Chicago Hot Stove to talk about how "close" the Cubs were(n't?) to signing Anibal Sanchez.
From Cubs Den
- The Cubs are looking for an edge thanks to modern medicine.
- If you're not that enthused by what the Cubs have done this offseason, you might console yourself with the questionable moves made by some other teams.
- Tim Huwe made a fanshot about this, so I assume (virtually) nobody saw it... but the Cubs signed a third-base prospect who followed a unique path to get to the minors.
From the Daily Herald
- The Cubs finished in the middle of the pack in 2012 payroll spending.
