3 big-time free agents the Cubs can sign after the MLB lockout ends

Right under the deadline prior to the MLB lockout hitting, the Chicago Cubs stole the show, swooping in and signing Marcus Stroman to a three-year, $71 million deal. The move gives the team at least three starters (with Stroman joining Kyle Hendricks and Wade Miley) more than capable of giving quality outing every five days.

Can the Chicago Cubs fix what’s wrong with Alec Mills?

Alec Mills is no superstar, but he will nevertheless matter to the Chicago Cubs next year. However you slice it, the starting rotation at the moment has more holes than Swiss cheese. Aging Jedi Kyle Hendricks will be there, newcomer Wade Miley will join him and Hendricks’ young apprentice Adbert Alzolay is probably a safe […] Can the Chicago Cubs fix what’s wrong with Alec Mills? - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Chicago Cubs: Corey Kluber is another potential free agent target

Free agents are starting to come off the board in a hurry as many look to secure their next deals ahead of the lockout that’s likely to grip MLB on Dec. 1. As for the Chicago Cubs, they kicked things off by picking up Wade Miley off waivers and adding outfielder Harold Ramirez from Cleveland.

Free agent Carlos Rodon is worth the heavy risk for the Chicago Cubs

So far, Jed Hoyer’s efforts toward remaking a starting rotation that, by almost every measure, ranked at or near the bottom of the league last year have consisted of picking up 35-year-old Wade Miley off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds. Suffice to say, that move alone won’t be enough to get the Chicago Cubs back […] Free agent Carlos Rodon is worth the heavy risk for the Chicago Cubs - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Now is the perfect time for the Cubs to pull off an Eric Hosmer trade

To this point, at least, it sure doesn’t seem like this winter will mark the sudden impact transformative adventure we’d hoped for given the free agent class. The Chicago Cubs have largely sat on the sidelines, with the lone exception of some trickery that helped them pick up Wade Miley off waivers from the Reds […] Now is the perfect time for the Cubs to pull off an Eric Hosmer trade - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Cubs trade target: Sonny Gray

Cubs trade target: Sonny Gray

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports The Reds are apparently having a fire sale, so why not? The Cincinnati Reds are apparently trying to dump salaries this offseason. The waiving of Wade Miley, and the Cubs’ claim of him, was probably just the first step in a Cincinnati attempt to get rid of contracts, if not outright tank. So why not go after another Reds pitcher? Sonny Gray isn’t the pitcher he used to be, clearly. He’s 32 and missed a month of 2021 with a rib-cage strain, and after he returned from that in July he posted a 4.64 ERA and 1.172 WHIP in 16 starts. He...

Chicago Cubs look like early favorites to sign left-hander Yusei Kikuchi

The Chicago Cubs are off to a good start this offseason with regards to their starting pitching. After acquiring Wade Miley via waiver claim from the Reds, they’re one step closer to fielding a competitive rotation. There’s still work to be done though and a harder throwing, higher strikeout pitcher is still needed to bring […] Chicago Cubs look like early favorites to sign left-hander Yusei Kikuchi - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Cubs trade target: Luis Castillo

Photo by Dylan Buell/ Hey, why not? News item: Trade market news: #Reds RHP Luis Castillo, who had a 2.73 ERA from June 1 onward, already is drawing interest from teams across @MLB. The Reds are willing to engage in talks on the 28-year-old, who will be eligible for free agency after ‘23. @MLBNetwork— Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) November 8, 2021 This is a puzzler, in a way; Luis Castillo, as noted, is just 28, comes with two more years of team control, and had a terrific second half of 2021 after a poor start. It appears, with the Reds’ waiving of Wade Miley and...

A Chicago Cubs pursuit of Steven Matz just picked up some traction

With a bit of trickery, the Chicago Cubs swooped in and picked up left-hander Wade Miley this week on the waiver wire. After not expressing interest as the Reds tried to work out a trade for the veteran, Jed Hoyer pulled the trigger on the claim – and Chicago shortly thereafter picked up his $10 […] A Chicago Cubs pursuit of Steven Matz just picked up some traction - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Chicago Cubs make surprising add, pick up veteran Wade Miley

Well, the Cincinnati Reds are clearly focused on one thing this offseason – shedding payroll. At least, unlike last season, the Chicago Cubs aren’t in the same boat. Rather, they’re benefitting from Cincinnati’s situation, picking up veteran left-hander Wade Miley via the waiver wire. It’s a bit of a surprising move, but essentially it now […] Chicago Cubs make surprising add, pick up veteran Wade Miley - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Cincinnati Reds go cheap again, lose Wade Miley on waivers to Chicago Cubs

Cincinnati Reds go cheap again, lose Wade Miley on waivers to Chicago Cubs

Photo by Emilee Chinn/ Waivers. I’m losing ways to describe just how unfathomably cheap the Cincinnati Reds are, have been, and continue to be. Just days after forfeiting the chance to shop Tucker Barnhart for anything of note, they’ve lost Wade Miley for absolutely nothing, too. The team announced on Friday afternoon that Miley had been claimed by the Chicago Cubs, but I’ll go ahead and like to the Cubs tweet because I’m about to do my best to forget the Reds exist on all platforms.

Cubs claim Wade Miley on waivers from Reds

Photo by Mark Brown/ Well, here's a surprise. One of the Cubs' biggest weaknesses in 2021 was starting pitching. Friday, they began to address this by claiming Wade Miley on waivers from the Reds. Miley is 35. He posted a 3.37 ERA (61 earned runs in 163 innings) in 28 starts for the Reds in 2021, including his first career no-hitter on May 7 in Cleveland. The lefthander was named the National League Pitcher of the Week following his no-hitter, his first career weekly award. Miley went on to allow only 37 earned runs over his first 20 starts of the season (2.75 ERA),...
