The Hot Stove is warming up for the Chicago Cubs.
- Options Aplenty as Cubs Eye Arms. The Chicago Cubs have $81 million committed and have a lot of directions to move in. Center field, starting pitching, free agents, trade options. Has video inserts from MLB Tonight, Theo Epstein, Phil Rogers.
From the Chicago Sun-Times:
- Theo predicts KC copycats. Speed, athleticism, contact part of the new recipe for success.
- Re-Signed. Wrigley Field's Marquee removed for renovations.
From the Chicago Tribune:
- Pitcher-by-Pitcher analysis. Has pitcher data and discussion of pitching needs.
- Anthony Rizzo is a great cheerleader. Just ask the tiny cancer patient he visited before NLDS Game 3.
- Seven Cubs filed for free agency. One retired. (You can probably guess the one, pretty easily.)
- John Arguello: The Cubs' Unfinished Opus. There is work to be done, decisions to be made. The composition goes on. More pitching, defense, contact are Cub needs.
- John Arguello: Royals Win It All...and the Offseason Begins. A look at the Cubs' roster needs heading into 2016.
- Brett Taylor: Roster Down to 29 After Moves. Roster jenga commences.
- ABC Chicago: Sod off. Take home a piece of the season. For free. For real.
- Trade Baez, not Castro. One fan's opinion.
