Default Cubs want Chris Sale?

http://www.chicagonow.com/loxas-fact...in-chris-sale/

I know a Sox/ Cubs deal won't happen but I would take Soler, Baez, Bryant and Edwards in a heartbeat for Sale

First of all, who is this guy with "sources?" Are these the same sources that said Girardi was 100% interested in being the Cubs skipper next season?

Yes, to answer the question, the Cubs want Chris Sale. You know who else would want him on their roster? These teams:
Tigers
Twins
Royals
Indians
Yankees
Red Sox
Blue Jays
Rays
Orioles
Athletics
Angels
Mariners
Rangers
Astros
Mets
Braves
Nationals
Phillies
Marlins (maybe)
Cardinals
Brewers
Pirates
Reds
Dodgers
D-Backs
Padres
Giants
Rockies

If he's quick on his feet and has good hands for catching the ball, I know about 30 or so NFL teams that would want him.

Ugh...I swear, people use the word blogger just like they used "internet" ten years ago to mean something HAD to be false.

Just because he's a blogger, doesn't mean this is made up. And the guy actually says it's on the Cubs end and to file it under "never gonna happen".

Loxas has been a "blogger" on Chicago Now for a while, and his "sources" have generally been correct. I'm tired of hearing people rag on bloggers because they somehow have less credibility than a newspaper, despite a wealth of evidence that it's just as much a pile of **** thrown at a wall.

I didn't call him a blogger. I compared him to half the idiots on the radio who all had "sources" who already knew when the Girardi press conference was scheduled.

I post plenty of Sox-related status updates on my Facebook page. I think they should start being reported as "a source."

When has he been correct? Just curious. Can you back this up?

Beat me to it. In a related development, "sources" say the Sox are interested in Mike Trout.

You're right, I don't think "blogger" should be a dirty word anymore. I totally trust this dude when he says that a scout he talked to says Sale's "arm action is surprisingly clean for his arm slot." Don't you agree?

Breaking news.....breaking news....my sources (who are never wrong) tell me that all 29 MLB teams are interested in Adam Dunn................remaining with the White Sox. Surprisingly, the strongest interest for this development comes from the teams in the AL Central.


You take it to the bank. My sources scout the scouts.

Newsflash, it is easier to get a Blog on ChicagoNow than it is to sign up for a Costco membership. He doesn't have any real sources.

I doubt that any sports blogger is generally correct. Even credible sports sources are incorrect more times than not. Many people who get paid good salaries to be be reliable sports columnists are wrong to some degree more times than not, but no one holds them accountable for their mistakes.

There are reliable bloggers. There are reliable sources on the Internet. But there is no reason to believe that anything you read from a blogger or on the Internet is reliable.

Of course, suggesting that the Cubs would like to have Chris Sale in their starting roations is like suggesting that on a clear day the sky is blue.
