Theo Won’t Keep Three Catchers Despite What He Says

The Chicago Cubs are willing to go into the 2015 season with three catchers. At least, that’s what President Theo Epstein wants general managers around the league to think.

Theo Epstein’s $50 Million Dollar Mistake Could Haunt Chicago

The biggest misstep of the Theo Epstein era in Chicago was giving pitcher Edwin Jackson a four-year, $52 million contract. The signing came after the failed pursuit that sent starter Anibal Sanchez back to Detroit. At the time of the signing, Jackson was a relatively young free agent at just 28-years-old and coming off two of his best seasons as a pro with the Washington Nationals...

Chicago Cubs shouldn’t fold on Sam Fuld

With parts of the team already set in place and Theo Epstein waiting for his prospects to blossom, the Chicago Cubs will be spending only a small amount of their resources on free agents. With some of those resources, I would like to see a veteran signing to help the outfield or serve as a utility player. A perfect fit for this position is former Cub Sam Fuld. A Stanford grad, Fuld...
