Earlier this week, we touched on the Cubs' potential to land the best KBO free agent of the summer. Well, taking a little trip further east into Japan, and it looks like the Cubs are being linked to who many feel is the best Asian born free agent in quite some time.
Along with the shortened season, several new changes were put in place only for this season to help get players through it. Well, not only did these changes get everyone involved through the season but now it appears MLB commissioner Rob Manfred wants these changes long term.
Today on Chicago Sports HQ Chatter, senior writer Cole and I are football focused as the Bears continue to win by taking over the top spot in the NFC North as well as establishing themselves as true contenders in the NFC.
One of the best players of the KBO over the past five seasons is about to post himself with hopes of landing a free agent deal with an MLB team. That player is Kiwoom Heroes shortstop Ha-Seong Kim.
Mike Minor is not the sexiest of names when it comes to free-agent starters, but he is not only durable and reliable but has been very solid the past few seasons.
This season has been different than any other before. Due to the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic, the baseball season’s start was delayed and even further pushed back because of the labor negotiations that ensued as baseball tried to return to play.
Perhaps the best thing that could have happened to the Cubs during this shortened season would be that it gave them a chance to find a long-term solution in center field.
Yes, the countdown is on, and many teams - especially the Cubs - may be chomping at the bit to start doing business.
This will be the final installment of our season in review series as the relief pitching will be covered today.
