        Cubs sign Xavier Nady to a one year contract.

        I think it is a good signing even if he can't throw. At worst he is a nice platoon partner for Fukudome when a lefty is pitching and a good bat off the bench. Plus he can slide into left if and when Soriano gets hurt.

          Cubs sign Chad Tracy, avoid arb with Marshall

          The Chicago Cubs and Sean Marshall have agreed to terms on a one-year contract, avoiding arbitration by settling on a figure of $950,000, according to a major league source.

          Marshall will vie for a rotation spot as the fifth starter or go back to the bullpen as a long man.

          As first reported by ESPNChicago.com on Tuesday, Chad Tracy signed a one-year, minor league deal with the Cubs. He will have an opportunity to earn more if he makes the major league roster out of spring training.

                  With Theriot, I just wish they'd go ahead and pay him his money, he's good enough to deserve it, even if he winds up being a second baseman by the end of the year.

                    Yeah I wanna keep Ryan Theriot happy...the money they're arguing over seems like nothing in the world of major league baseball. And I'm glad he's willing to move to 2nd, Starlin Castro is the real deal.

                      I agree, he did well as the second baseman a while ago, and I'd like to keep him there if it means that we get this stud prospect to come in and be our regular shortstop.

                            Hadn't he been with the organization in the past? I don't remember him actually spending a whole lot of time on the big league club, but I could swear that he had actually made it to the Cubs at some point and was considered to be one of their better prospects for some time.

                              They reinstated prospect Jordan Latham from the inactive list.

                                Are you referring to Starlin Castro? The furthest he's made it is AA last year (31 games) and played in the Arizona Fall League where he was one of the league's top hitters at 20 years old. He'll start the year likely in AA again and very well could see early MLB time based on his performance as well as Ryan Theriot and Mike Fontenot's offensive numbers.
                                What a Batted Ball is Worth (in terms of a run):
                                Line Drive: .356
                                HBP: .342
                                Non-Intentional Walk: .315
                                Intentional Walk: .176
                                Outfield Fly: .035
                                Groundball: -.101
                                Bunts: -.103
                                Infield Fly: -.243
                                Strikeout: -.287
