I just had some very interesting news sent to me via email-
There are numerous moves the Cubs were not able to make before the deadline but that does not mean they are done. Here is a list of players the Cubs will place on waivers that I received verbally from a person inside the Cubs organization.
The Cubs are looking to cut cost as much as they can and become major players in the next two free agent markets while developing a young energetic core out of their farm system. I thought I would pass this along. I love your blog, keep up the great work.
Pretty good stuff! What do you think Cub fans? Are the Cubs making the right move by doing this? I do! Putting a player on waivers really hurts nothing. In fact up until a couple years ago tons of players were put on waivers and pulled back without even knowing. Usually the only time you knew back then is when you were eventually traded to the team that claimed you.
To see some of these players moved would not surprise me. We have seen bigger shockers like Alex Rio and Adam Dunn moved after the deadline.
Just something to keep your eye on!
