- The Cubs have had internal discussion about Jake Peavy but have also talked about Randy Wolf of Braden Looper according to the Sun-Times. They do note that the Cubs would still have to get owner approval. They should trade for Peavy, or sign Sheets, or sign Pettitte. No more Wolf or Looper crap!
- On Talkin Baseball, Crane Kenney that the Cubs are looking into launching a video on demand channel for the Cubs by Opening Day. Sounds great right!?! It gets better, the Cubs are still looking at getting an All-Cubs channel like the YES Network. It would carry all Cubs games. Sign me up!
- Bruce Levine had some updates for today so lets have a look-
***** The Cubs are looking at Juan Uribe as the 25th man on the roster. The Cubs are looking at a backup for second, 3rd, and SS that is right handed and he fits the bill well. The Cubs have also been looking at guys that can fill in as backup role at the corners as an option as well. They like Millar, Hinske and Aurilia. I do not see the Cubs bringing in Hinske(lefty) or Millar(has not played third in years) but I do see Aurilia, Uribe, and Nomar( that is my pick not Levine's).
***** Levine said the Cubs still like Heilman and the M's still like Cedeno, so a deal still could be made there. I would do that in a heartbeat!
***** Levine said the Cubs need Peavy because they do not have a true ace with the way Z has been pitching. Plus it allows the Cubs to move Harden the 5th spot, which would allow us to skip some starts. He thinks Peavy would cost Jeff Stevens, Garrett Olson, Josh Vitters, Kevin Hart, and Welington Castillo. Seems like a lot but sign me up. Then make the Cedeno/Heilman trade and sign Nomar, Uribe, or Aurilia and your set for Opening Day!
More to come I am sure!
