On this edition of the Cubs Corner, presented by Coach’s Bar and Grill, Anthony welcomed reporter Mariah Guzman to the show to discuss general managers and the future of the Cubs.
Whatever happens from now until March will alter the team's future regarding what they do with their core players.
No disrespect to anyone in the Cubs organization, but hiring someone outside the organization may be a great move. After all, this group has been together for nine years now.
As it seems to be becoming more and more likely, the DH will be returning to the National League, and things could get a lot more interesting in free agency.
Perhaps the most important role of business this offseason is trying to figure out what to do with this Cubs roster and who to keep moving forward.
The Chicago Cubs today announced that the team and President of Baseball Operations Jed Hoyer have agreed to terms on a new five-year contract that runs through the 2025 season.
Russell is a free agent this offseason and may very well decide to stay in the KBO for another season. However, now that he got that season under his belt, he may be looking to stateside again, even if it means a minimal deal type of contract.
This is a team that needs a makeover desperately, but at what cost? Do they want to go full rebuild and not compete for a few seasons, or do they want to try and give it a go one more time and then worry about the consequences?
The Cubs roster is now set at 37 players.
