Arismendy Alcantara: The Cubs' Future Redundancy


A redundant player may sound like trade bait, but Alcantara may fit into a very valuable role.

Cubs on the ST Trade Block: George Kottaras


Rumors came out yesterday that the Rangers have been looking at George Kottaras. What will it take for them to get the Cubs' backup catcher?

Cubs On The ST Trade Block: Jeff Samardzija


Jeff Samardzija's name has been on the trade block all offseason. Is it finally time for a deal?

Cubs On The ST Trade Block: Nate Schierholtz


Nate Schierholtz projects to be the Cubs' starting rightfielder. But has he become expendable?

Cubs On The ST Trade Block: Carlos Villanueva


Carlos Villanueva has been known for pitching well in a rotation in short spurts. And that may be why teams could come calling for him this spring.

Cubs Spring Training Trade Block: Darwin Barney


The first in a series exploring possible candidates to be traded before Opening Day. We'll start with Darwin Barney.

The 411 On Potential Shark Trade Partners: M's


The Mariners have signed Robinson Cano. And that's about it. If their budget has hit a wall, Jeff Samardzija may be a cheap alternative.

The 411 On Potential Shark Trade Partners: Royals


Dayton Moore gave up a haul last year to acquire James Shields. Will he do it again to get Jeff Samardzija?

The 411 On Potential Shark Trade Partners: Yankees


The Yankees are very desperate to add pitching and if they can't add it with Masahiro Tanaka, they could turn to Jeff Samardzija.

The 411 On Potential Shark Trade Partners: D'backs


The Diamondbacks look like they're going for it in 2014 and they need another starter. Maybe the Cubs can join the White Sox in fleecing the Diamondbacks this offseason.

Is Masahiro Tanaka Too Expensive For The Yankees?


The Yankees are rumored to be the favorite to sign Masahiro Tanaka, but does the luxury tax make him a luxury the Yankees can't afford?

The 411 On Potential Shark Trade Partners: Padres


The Cubs' front office should be very familiar with the Padres' system. If the Padres decide they want to go for it in the next 2 years, the Padres could be a great fit in a trade for Jeff Samardzija.

The 411 On Potential Shark Trade Partners: Pirates


The Pirates don't seem to have a great need for starting pitching, but they've apparently inquired on Jeff Samardzija. It's fun to play what if with their system, so let's see what they have.

The 411 On Potential Shark Trade Partners: Orioles


The Orioles have been competitive in the AL East the last 2 years, but they're starting to come into payroll problems. If they're trying to add quality starting pitching for cheap, their only...

The 411, Possible Shark Trade Partners: Blue Jays


In the first of a series, we'll review the Jays as a possible suitor for Jeff Samardzija.

Tigers Ship Fister To Nats For A Pair Of Shoelaces


What does that mean about the Shark market? I have no idea. This is the most lopsided trade I can remember.

Cubs Make Deals, Save Cash. Where Did It Go?


Heck if I know, but that won't stop me from guessing. Let's look at where payroll savings from 2012 could have gone first. I'll do a separate article on the 2013 savings and how that money might be...

The Cubs' Sell-Off Isn't Over Yet


Matt Garza, Scott Feldman, Carlos Marmol and Alfonso Soriano are gone. They won't be the only ones.

Who Has The Pieces To Make A Deal For Samardzija?


No one is untouchable and that includes Jeff Samardzija. If a team offers enough, the Cubs will certainly listen. So... who can offer enough?

Matt Garza Trade Rumor Explosion!


The Cubs had a nationally broadcast game Saturday night featuring Matt Garza as their starting pitcher. What was the result? A bajillion rumors about where he'll be playing next.

Wanted: Teams Desperate For Matt Garza


The Giants, Dodgers, Rangers, Indians, Pirates, Blue Jays and Padres all watched Matt Garza’s last start. The Red Sox, Orioles and Nationals, while not there, still supposedly have interest in him....

The 411 On Potential Cubs Trade Partners: Padres


This is the last team in this preview series, and the Padres are a great fit for the Cubs... if the Padres can stay in the playoff hunt.

The 411 On Potential Cubs Trade Partners: Giants


The Giants are seven games under .500. And yet they're only six and a half games out of first in the NL West. Are they close enough to make a run at a mediocre NL West? If so, the Cubs could be a...

Scott Hairston Traded To Nationals


The Cubs have swapped outfielder Scott Hairston to the Nationals, according to Ken Rosenthal, for a minor-league pitcher.

The 411 On Potential Cubs Trade Partners: Nats


The Nationals have disappointed, playing .500ish when they were expected to be a World Series favorite. They've stayed within striking distance of the Braves, though, so some improved play and new...

The 411 on Potential Cubs Trade Partners: Dodgers


The Dodgers are playing with Monopoly money, so who the heck knows what they're capable of. They've made a big surge after a pathetic start to the season, so they could be in line to make some moves.

The 411 On Potential Cubs Trade Partners: Rockies


The Rockies were projected to be one of the worst teams in baseball this year, but they've surprisingly stayed in the NL West playoff race. Will they make the moves to upgrade their pitching in...

The 411 On Potential Cubs Trade Partners: D'backs


The Diamondbacks are trying to get a top of the rotation starter with years of control and rumor has them interested in Jeff Samardzija. Can they put together a package that will interest the Cubs?

The 411 On Potential Cubs Trade Partners: Braves


Well, the trades have begun and the Cubs' assets are starting to dwindle. Could Kevin Gregg to Atlanta be the next trade to go down?

The 411 On Potential Cubs Trade Partners: Reds


Dusty Baker has fallen into a great situation with the Reds. If he doesn't screw it up, he could be sitting in the playoffs come October.
