The name Tuesday derives from the Old English "Tiwesdæg" and literally means "Tiw's Day". Tiw is the Old English form of the Proto-Germanic god Tîwaz, or Týr in Norse, a god of war and law. Thank you, Wikipedia.

From ESPN Chicago:


  • Carrie Muskat: Corey Black determined to succeed as a reliever. Black was moved out of a starting role in 2015. He was not placed on the 40-man roster.
  • Jonathan Mayo: Jeimer Candelario is among 10 breakout AFL prospects. The third baseman made enough of an impression to be placed on the 40-man roster.

From Bleacher Nation:

  • Brett Taylor: Dave Kaplan busts out the rumors. David Price still likes Toronto, the rumors about Jeff Samardzija and John Lackey are legit, and other items of interest featuring the likes of Jason Heyward, Carlos Carrasco, Julio Teheran, Shelby Miller, and Miguel Montero.
  • Michael Cerami: Getting to know new Cubs reliever Spencer Patton. Patton was a 24th-round pick of the Kansas City Royals. What does he throw? How can he help? Answers.
  • Brett Taylor: Cubs or Giants more likely for Lackey? Alliterative elucidation of the topic. The St. Louis Cardinals and the Boston Red Sox are also involved.

From Cubs Den:

  • John Arguello has also been listening to David Kaplan's updated offseason outlook. He offers more details and a few thoughts.
