Brian Roberts, Ben Sheets & Rich Harden

We wanted all three—Brian Roberts, Ben Sheets & Rich Harden—but the Cubs choose otherwise, not landing a single one due to scouting reports, money…or simply both.

Those decisions, as it turns out, proved wise on the Cubs part.


Erik Bedard To Cubs?

If the Cubs are willing to risk a contract on Ben Sheets why not look at Erik Bedard too?

It’s a big risk, no doubt, with Bedard coming off back-to-back seasons shortened by shoulder surgeries, but no more of a gamble than signing the former Milwaukee ace, either.

Tim Kurkjian pointed out on Baseball Tonight that Bedard is more likely to sign a one-year incentive laden deal than Sheets.
