Cubs Notes From the Past Couple Days

Sorry for not updating the blog lately, it has been a busy weekend. Here is the latest stories form the Hot Stove-

- Rich Hill to the O's might not be a done deal but could be just waiting for the O's to designate a player for assignment. Some baseball officials say the deal is basically done and the Cubs will get a PTBNL for Hill, while other baseball guys say that Hill is getting interest from the M's and Royals. I say let them all battle for him and get some actual value for him. I would love to see a Rich Hill and minor leaguer for Mark Teahen, he would be the ideal utility man. A left handed version of DeRosa. Could that happen???

- All is quite on the Peavy front.

- According to Bruce Levine, Jim has been wanting to get Heilman for a while and one of his goals was to get him this off season.

- Bruce also says that Z will have a breakout season and will not play in the WBC.

- Bruce tossed out the name Brian Roberts and said if the Cubs cannot get Peavy they could pursue Roberts. The only way I get Roberts is if we trade Theriot and put Roberts or Fonty at SS next season and have Miles as a utility guy.

- Chat on Monday Night at 7!

The Peavy deal is dead. It should just be forgotten--it isn't happening.

I still think the Cubs will get Peavy and it looks like Hill is going to the Orioles for PTBNL
