PITTSBURGH — Damn you, Dan Haren. You and your mysterious MRIs. That's what Cubs President Theo Epstein had to be thinking when Carlos Marmol started to fall apart in the ninth inning on Monday, threatening to turn opening day from a delightful...
The Cubs non-tendered third baseman Ian Stewart and relief pitchers Jaye Chapman and Zach Putnam on Friday night, while offering arbitration to Matt Garza, Jeff Samardzija, Luis Valbuena and James Russell. Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said earlier...
Like any 101-loss team, the Cubs have a few holes to fill. And after spending their first year tearing down the building, Theo Epstein, Jed Hoyer and Jason McLeod head to the general managers meetings in Palm Springs, Calif., on Tuesday to lay the...
