The updates will be scarce today as most the GM"s have left Florida and our own GM is recovering from getting fifty years of donuts and trans fats blown out of his arteries.
Another Score update from George Offman and he cites "one report" that the Cubs are talking to Jeff Suppan and mentions that Rocco Baldelli is on the Cubs wish list along with the White Sox. Both sounded like much ado about nothing at this point, so don't go nuts over it.
I'm listening to the Score at the moment and they did mention the Cubs are talking to Jeff Suppan, but no real details.
- Word is that Levine on ESPN 1000 is reporting the Cubs are "close" to signing Jason Marquis, take it for what it's worth.
Thursday Morning/Afternoon Roundup
- Gil Meche's deal with the Royals
is in the 5/55-60 range. Bullet, Dodged.
- Daryle Ward looks to have signed with the Cubs
on a one year, $1.05 million deal.
- I can't find a link, but I believe ESPN 1000 is reporting that the Cubs have turned their attention towards Jason Marquis after losing out on Meche.
- A very random rumor
of Mark Hendrickson being dealt to the Cubs.
