The Chicago Cubs have offered salary arbitration to free agents Aramis Ramirez and Carlos Pena.
The players have until Nov. 30 to accept. If they decline and sign elsewhere, the Cubs would be entitled to compensatory picks in the amateur draft next June.
Ramirez's agent has already said his client will not return to the Cubs. The third baseman batted .306 last season with 26...
RHP Marco Carrillo and RHP Justin Berg will be back in the Cubs 0rganization next year, as two more post-2011 Rule 55 Minor League Free-Agents have re-signed with the Cubs, joining OF Jim Adduci and INF Jonathon Mota who re-signed earlier this month. (OF Brad Snyder and INF Scott Moore have signed minor league deals with HOU).
Berg will be spending most of 2012 rehabbing from TJS...
The Chicago Cubs have offered arbitration to free agents Aramis Ramirez and Carlos Pena.
Ramirez, who has spent the past 8 1/2 seasons as the Cubs' third baseman, has already told the team he doesn't expect to return next season.
He hit .306 with 26 homers and 93 RBIs last season.
Pena recently concluded a one-year, $10 million deal with Chicago, hitting .225 with 28...
At this point, Carlos Zambrano has been everywhere and done everything as a Cub. He’s gone from an ace on a Cubs team that seemed destined to break the 95 year curse to a unabashed distraction who can’t keep his mouth shut. But overall, the Cubs have to be more than satisfied the production they have gotten Zambrano since they signed Zambrano as a 16 year old in 1997 out of Venezuela...

He required 18 stitches to close a cut and suffered mild tissue damage from the mishap. Zambrano is scheduled to make his next start on Dev. 6...

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports, the Chicago Cubs' new regime is willing to move right handed pitcher Matt Garza. This would make sense for the Cubs since they could get some valuable players in return given the thin market on starting pitching.
Rosenthal adds that although the Rangers moved Neftali Feliz to the starting rotation after signing Joe Nathan, they can'...
At this point the Mets have not made any moves. The only thing we know is that we have a lot of holes to fill. We know that the club wants to bring back Reyes, but to this end no offer has been made public. We also know that we need a starting pitcher since Chris Capuano is now seeking a two year deal and we are only willing to give a one year deal. We need a closer in the...
