    I could see the Cubs standing pat on hitting. I'm doubtful they're all for real, but at least I can see a case for a core of Wisdom, Schwindel, Ortega, Contreras, and Happ being something good, with some late bargain shopping at the FA market. But the pitching....wow.
    I'm just here for the baseball.

    The Cubs would have to pay big money for those kinds of players. So far they are indicating that they want to go cheap.

    They talk like they are players. They talk like a big market team. They act like they are cheap.

    They are also an HISTORIC franchise, you'd think they'd be signing big players by now.

    Cubs in HISTORIC talks with Marcus Stroman. Fingers crossed for Gregg!

    Looks like a done deal - Stroman just tweeted "CHICAGO! @Cubs"

    Well that's awesome!
    If DMT didn't exist we would have to invent it. There has to be a weirdest thing. Once we have the concept weird, there has to be a weirdest thing. And DMT is simply it.

    Thank you sir!

    I heard about it as a real possibility on my way to bowling. I did not get the official news until about 10:30 last night. It was nice to get some good news on the Cubs front.

    Yeah, now you have one guy who'd be good enough to be the Brewers #4 SP.
