- Sullivan mentions today that the Cubs could trade Milton Bradley to the Rays for Iwamura and Burrell. I have been saying that for a while! If Hendry can pull that off, I say do it!
- Hendry says he does not believe his job is in jeopardy and is just working towards building a strong team for 2010.
- The Cubs are working on signing John Grabow to a multi-year deal worth right around 7 million.
- The Cubs would also like to sign a speedy leadoff hitter. Figgins seems the logical fit even though I think Iwamura could fill the role if they traded for him.
- The Cubs do not want to get in a bidding war for Chapman so they are likely to search for pitching depth elsewhere.
- The Cubs are looking for another "Rich Harden" type player for next season. They want a guy the can buy low and have tons of upside. Players like Eric Bedard, Noah Lowry, and Ben Sheets could fit the bill.
- One Cubs exec says if Mark Teahen or JJ Hardy are non-tendered expect the Cubs to be "serious players" for one if not both players.
- Tom Ricketts has stated that he want the Cubs payroll to remain in the top 3 in baseball. That is some great news Cub fans!
