The Cubs have their pieces in place in the front office, they have their manager, but when the hell are they going to affect the roster? When the hell are they going to practice what they preach?
If you're like me (which you're not because my mommy says I'm special), this is something that is really weighing on your mind. You see all these backups catchers just flying off the market leaving....well, leaving every single player worth a damn.
But still, I want to know. Will the Cubs go after Albert Pujols? Will they go after Prince Fielder (probably not, if you read this blog)? Is Grady Sizemore a serious option? What pitcher will they go after? Will Jed and Theo allow goats into Wrigley Field under their regime?
Serious stuff here.
Luckily, here at CSNChicago.com, we have Patrick Mooney. Now Moondog, as he has become affectionately known to some here, is a great Insider. He knows what's up.
"These past couple of days at the GM meetings in Milwaukee, Jed and Theo called it their information-gathering phase," Mooney said on CSN Thursday afternoon. "I think what you'll see is these guys aren't quite as attached to these players as obviously the previous administration was.
"So this is a time to meet with agents, talk to other executives and start laying the ground work for this winter and then everything will really come into focus around the Winter Meetings in Dallas."
The Winter Meetings run from Dec. 5-8.
So there's your answer.
