Here is some good stuff from Bruce Miles of the Daily Herald-
***** He says Randy Wolf remains a possibility for the Cubs. I can think of better or worst candidates for the 5th starter position. I would rather have Marshall start and sign a guy with upside or veteran like Kenny Rogers, Pedro Martinez, Odalis Perez, Andy Pettitte, and my favorite Ben Sheets.
***** He says the Cubs are unlikely to sign Blanco but Bako remains on the radar. I just don't get this but right now it looks like Koyie Hill is the backup catcher (which I support). I also think there are better options besides Bako like Javier Valentin and Ivan Rodriguez( rumored he would have to take a minor league deal).
***** He says Rich Hill, Felix Pie, and Ronny Cedeno are out of options. All three could be traded before opening day with Cedeno the most likely to stay. Guzman is also a trade candidate because he is out of options but he will make the bullpen or could be apart of package of players to get "you know who."
Here is some quick hits-
**** Marshall is the front runner for the 5th spot in the rotation. Even over acquiring a veteran starter.
**** Bradley as of right now will bat 4th with Lee batting 3rd and Aram batting 4th. I do not know why they would have Lee still bat 3rd. He should bat 2nd, 5th, or 6th.
**** The Cubs could have interest in Paul Lo Duca. He was considered an elite catcher up until 2007 when his numbers really dropped off.
