Update: Dodgers sign Puig for 7 yrs, $42M; Soler coming soon? Dodgers scouting LaHair
Some news and notes to go with your morning cup of coffee… UPDATE:  According to MLB.com’s Jessie Sanchez. The Dodgers forked over $40M to sign Puig.  That number is staggering to me because I’ve been told that not many scouts have seen him play.  Dodgers are probably eager to make a splash with new ownership and...

Cubs Sveum not afraid to give answers

Cubs Sveum not afraid to give answers
You may not agree with Dale Sveum bunting with his #3 hitter. However, you do have to be impressed with the way Sveum is handling himself and the Cubs job so far. This is a pretty tough gig for a first time manager. The Cubs job is already tough (probably top 3), but then add... Read more »

Cubs showing signs of progress

Cubs showing signs of progress
Sorry no immediate game recap today everyone as John was at the Peoria game. Don’t look now but this team is becoming fun to watch. The Cubs have won 7 of 12.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before… The Cubs kick and scratch their way to a few runs and take a lead into the 8th inning.  They turn their game over to their veteran bullpen arms Kerry Wood and Carlos Marmol and…. Well, you know the rest. The Cubs lose this game 7-4 after... Read more »

When do the new Cubs get here?

When do the new Cubs get here?
It’s only been one game, but I’m ready for more change. I keep reminding myself it’s a new era and it is going to take time for things to get turned around. We knew that this would be a “building” year, as this regime likes to call it. However, after the way the Cubs dropped... Read more »

Rafael Dolis zoning in on role as Cubs future closer

Rafael Dolis zoning in on role as Cubs future closer
When Carlos Marmol got taken out of the game yesterday with an injury, the possibilities started flashing through my mind.  With Sean Marshall gone to the Reds, it left Kerry Wood as the only experienced candidate to take over the closer’s spot — but then what if he got hurt or faltered in that role?...
