What’s Up in the NL Central: 3/29/13


As we approach the final weekend prior to the regular season’s commencement, there are still soime roster decisions team have to consider. Maybe even a trade. Or sign a guy to huge chunk of chjange. Or hopefully, have your “home” still be home…

Chicago Cubs

Most chatter still surrounds talks of Wrigley Field. On the Chicago Tribune’s website, there are two different stories. One tells that both sides of the argument are full of it. The second re-visits the deal of a plans to install a large scoreboard.

You do need to register to read the entirety of these articles, but it is free to do so.

Milwaukee Brewers

One might dispute that a reason the Brewers were able to crawl back into the wild card picture last season was due to the work of Mike Fiers. Welp, seems like the signing of Kyle Lohse might cost Fiers his spot in the starting rotation as guessed by Tom Haudricourt of Journal-Sentinel.

Pittsburgh Pirates

Seems like I can’t get away from the Pirates starting rotation…

With the injuries that have grabbed their staff, there might be a name the emerges as a potential trade candidate for Pittsburgh: LA’s Chris Capuano. Rum Bunter has some of the story.

St. Louis Cardinals

Lots of dough flying in the air these days. Justin Verlander. Buster Posey. Granted, Adam Wainwright didn’t get the stack of cash the other two did, but he did quite well, thank you very much. Here’s a little background on the deal from Daniel Solzman of Redbird Rants.
