    Lots of avoiding arbitration texts today. So that’s good.

    Find it interesting in there that Tom says “players from that era owe us a little bit of honesty”. What I seem to remember is MLB as a whole turning a blind eye to the “long ball” era to recover popularity lost during previous strikes.

    Avila signs with D'Backs.

    ESPN comment on Cubs' biggest hole (no homo):

    Chicago Cubs

    Hole: Rotation

    Targets: Yu Darvish, Alex Cobb, John Lackey

    The rotation as it stands isn't terrible -- FanGraphs projects it as 10th in the majors -- but Darvish would certainly be an upgrade over Eddie Butler or Mike Montgomery (who is best suited for the bullpen). One report had the Cubs offering Darvish a four-year deal while the Twins offered a five-year deal. Although Theo Epstein signed Jon Lester to a six-year contract a few years ago (with a seventh-year option), we know the front office is averse to giving pitchers long-term deals. Still, many believe that the Cubs remain the favorites to land Darvish.

    Ok so let me get this straight, Jake, Darvish and Cobb are still unsigned? And spring training is about to start? And there are claims of collusion?

    Not collusion. They've just all been burned.

    There are allegations of collusion, but the issue really is that the Yanks and Dodgers aren’t overspending and falsely inflating the market. Yu and Jake, and honestly Cobb, all want too many years. Paying a pitcher 30mil when they’re 37 or 38 is bad business.

    Jake has a mechanical hitch in his delivery. He kind of cross steps and throws across his body. It’s what makes him so good, bc the ball moves oddly. It’s also what made him lose it for an inning in a lot of his outings, bc he has to be perfectly imperfect to be dominant. Cobb has had some injury issues, and Yu is ... well, we know what Yu’s issues are. He telegraphs pitches, and he’s not a great pitcher. He’s a great thrower, but not near the pitcher someone like Hendricks is. Yu wants to strike everyone out instead of trusting his defense to get people out.

    Well, let's see how he does. I'm not that excited about him being a Cub. I hope he proves me wrong.

    Baseball contracts are so terrible.

    The NBA has it right, no more than 4 year deals, with the occasional 5 year but no more.

    Yu will eat up innings in the regular season, but you still want Kyle and Jose going ahead of him in the playoffs until he can prove his playoff worth. Im excited to have him.

    I keep waiting for Jake to sign with the hated Cardinals.

    Yu is honestly probably our 5th starter. The dude from Colorado could end up being our #1. I think his stuff is that good.

    The Florida shooting took place at Anthony Rizzo's high school and he still lives in the area. He left spring training to return home.
