Not much on the news front this morning other than names of the players eligible for salary arbitration. The Cubs have seven names eligible. In the past, the Cubs would rarely go to arbitration, choosing to sign a player to a deal agreed upon by both parties before the deadline. It will be interesting to see how Theo and Jed run things. The list for the Cubs includes:

  • Jeff Baker
  • Blake DeWitt
  • Matt Garza
  • Geovany Soto
  • Ian Stewart
  • Chris Volstad
  • Randy Wells


If you missed a couple of really good posts over the weekend you need to go back and take a look. Jeremiah talked about the Cubs announcement for stadium renovations / additions to the RF bleachers and Norm did a nice recap from the Tweets about the Cubs convention.
