CUBS HEADLINES

  • Scott Feldman inks a one year deal, giving the Cubs another low cost, low risk arm to plug into the mix for a rotation spot with the hopes that he pans out as part of the future or trade value to bring pieces for the future. Dave Cameron of Fan Graphs had a post on Feldman, calling him the “Poor Man’s Brandon McCarthy” that was edited to even include McCarthy’s impressions of Feldman. The deal is valued at $6 million with incentives. Feldman will join Matt Garza, Jeff Samardzija, Travis Wood, Scott Baker, and a cast of thousands for the five spots in the rotation, including dark horse candidate, Michael Bowden
  • According to Buster Olney, the Cubs are one of a few teams kicking the tires on outfielder, Jeff Keppinger, who recently broke his leg but should be ready by spring training. Eh, I’d rather have Giancarlo Stanton.

Topic for Discussion

With the rumor that the Cubs are interested in Keppinger, I’d like to know what you see as the starting outfield on opening day as well as who will make the team as the reserve. Let’s discuss the position because my guess is there are a lot of people with differing opinions.
