We here at LOHO wish you, your family, and the Chicago Cubs all the best in 2012!
Happy New Year to all in LOHOLAND !!! Here’s to another year of rooting/ranting the Cubs on in the new Theo era…
White Sox traded Carlos Quentin to San Diego for pitchers.
It’s a lazy day, so . . here:
“The Marlins have serious interest in Cubs pitcher Matt Garza, Major League sources tell Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. The Marlins’ interest was sparked after they failed to land left-hander Gio Gonzalez from the Athletics.
The two sides are not close to a deal and the Cubs continue to speak to other clubs, including the Tigers, according to sources. The Yankees have also expressed interest in Garza, but the asking price for the 28-year-old is a stumbling block for the Bombers. The Red Sox and Blue Jays are also in on the pitcher but talks have slowed with both teams.
Rosenthal writes that the Tigers might have the upper hand if they are willing to include right-hander Jacob Turner in a deal. Rival executives say the Cubs are desperate for young starting pitching. Meanwhile, the Marlins have more position players to offer.
Marlins’ Class-A outfielder Christian Yelich is likely on the Cubs’ wish list and was among the players the Athletics were targeting in a possible deal for Gonzalez. Rival clubs say Matt Dominguez, Gaby Sanchez, Chris Coghlan, and Jose Ceda are among the other players Miami is willing to part with.”
Um…wasn’t Ceda drafted by the Cubs? Or at the very least in pretty sure he was in the Cubs system a few years back. I think he was one of the players we sent to Florida for Groggles.
We got him from SD in the Todd Walker deal. And then we sent him to FL for Groggles.
I hope everyone has a good and safe New Year.
My wife and I got a babysitter and are going out to a nice Japanese restaurant and then we’re going to see The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
We are hunkered down by the air conditioner and watching Anderson Cooper. Once again it will be close to 90 degrees for New Year’s, and the a/c’s will be running…
What! A downthumb for not liking 90 degree heat on January 1st? Or because I was watching Anderson Cooper?
Also 90 degree heat= my mom can’t go outside after 10 a.m. or so due to heart stents.(can’t take temps below 54 degrees-above 74 degrees)
Yappy Hew Near to all of you!
Happy New Year, everybody! 2011 is now relegated to the dustbins of history, and I’m thrilled to see it go – Here’s to the Theo era, Year One!!!!!!!!!
In future Cub documentaries, the announcer will intone,” 2012 dawned with great expectations from long-suffering Chicago Cubs fans as the Theo Epstein era began.”..
