I can’t wait to see Edwin Jackson get going in a Cubs uniform. Some people think Jackson’s signing was questionable but I believe it’ll be great for the organization.

im not as excited as you but I think it was a good signing for sure. I mean it was NEEDED in all honesty and set us up to still have payroll flexibility and a quality starter in the rotation…. good signing… we need to make a move for an ACE tho… I would also try and extend Garza, his value is the lowest its been and he is a good Cub. Ace, Garza, Shark, Jackson, Pick of the rest is a pretty stellar rotation. The ace I want? Next year I would like to see us trade for Price because there is no way TB can afford him and his value will bring them a haul. We should also have just enough to acquire him next year if things go good for us in the minors this year.

Price would be a great fit for the Cubs. I was a little disapointed, as well as many of us about the Sanchez deal falling through, but I really like the direction the Cubs are going in. Nothing too flashy but exciting. Good things coming.

ya sanchez would have been nice but Garza would have definitely been gone then. I think the way its working out we could end up with a better rotation at a reasonable price…. meaning I think Garza’s asking price comes down and gets in a range where the FO feels comfortable signing him. Also Tim Lincecum and Josh Johnson are free agents and could be potential pickups… granted not of the quality of David Price but still younger pitchers(28&29) with ACE potential

•The Yankees would not give up a good prospect to acquire Alfonso Soriano, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports (on Twitter). Heyman suggests the Yankees would pay $10MM of the $36MM remaining on the left fielder’s contract. Soriano has indicated he’d consider trades to a group of six or seven teams, including the Yankees. WOO HOO!!

really?? every single page?
