It's clear the Cubs want to address their rotation this offseason but will they be big players for the top free agent pitchers, Zack Greinke and David Price?
The Cubs are issuing 60 full playoff shares from a record-high MLB players' pool that totals more than $69 million.
The Cubs continued adding to their bullpen depth on Wednesday, dealing for left-handed pitcher Rex Brothers. The 27-year-old is 16-11 with 61 holds, 20 saves and a 3.42 ERA in 286 career appearances.

Team talk

  • 3y
    The Cubs did submit a bid for Japanese pitching phenom Yu Darvish, although his 51 million posting price tag never was going to fit with the team's strategy right now.
  • 3y
    San Diego's top first base prospect Anthony Rizzo may be available now that the Padres have acquired a new first baseman, and the Cubs may be willing to give up Matt Garza for the young prospect.
  • 3y
    Cincinnati shook things up Saturday, bolstering their starting rotation by dealing Yonder Alonso and others to San Diego for righty Mat Latos.
  • 3y
    Update: Sources close to the negotiations have confirmed to me that the Cubs have serious interest in Paul Maholm, but no deal appears to be imminent.
  • 3y
    The rumors of Prince Fielder coming to the Cubs have been ongoing and they probably won't stop until Fielder signs on the dotted line with a team. Dale Sveum thinks the media is blowing the story out of proportion.
  • 3y
    Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports says Prince Fielder is the Cubs' player to lose, but new manager Dale Sveum says the team has yet to reach out to the star free agent.
  • 3y
    Dave McKay, who spent the past 16 seasons as the Cardinals' first-base coach, is joining Dale Sveum's coaching staff for 2012. Rudy Jaramillo hitting coach and Lester Strode bullpen coach will both return.
