Just when i thought todays rumors were gonna be quiet i check my email. So now its another addition to my unconfirmed rumors, so have fun with it.
I was emailed that accordian to espn 1000 David Kaplan reported that the cubs will announce by the latest monday that we signed Floyd to a 1 year 8 million dollar deal with about 3 or 4 million guaranteed and the rest incentives.. It also says Meche could be the next addition to our pitching staff!!
If true this would be huge if Floyd does a bench roll or platoon with Murton.. Adding Meche in the rotation will be much improved and it will be intresting what deal we would sign him to.
In another email i recieved we are expected to sign 2-3 pitchers and one possibally through a trade, all in the winter meetings.. It says that Hendry wants to get his rotation some what settled up by Christmas.. It also says Hendry has been in good contact with the following pitchers: Padilla, Meche, Wolf, Marquis, Lilly, and Batista.
The emailer didnt say where he got his info and i hadent heard back from him but i decided to post it anyways considering it a rumors site and i can cover myself by putting it in my Unconfirmed rumors section in my Blog.
If this emailer is correct Hendry( who i think already deserves a B so far in the offseason) deserves alot of credit!!! With these emailers info heres the lineup and rotation i have come up with( or what i would like to see anyways)
