Weekend Roundup: Getting Set for the Busy Season

The Cubs should start making offseason moves some time in the near future! Here are the latest news, rumors and notes-
  • According to several reports, Dale Sveum has asked Chris Bosio to be his pitching coach. No word on whether or not Bosio will accept the offer.
  • Carlos Zambrano got hit in the face with a line drive while pitching in the Venezuelan Winter League last week. He will not pitch for Caribes again until December 6.
  • If Craig Council decides to retire, there is talk of him joining Sveum's staff.
  • Buster Olney tweeted this weekend that neither Albert Pujols or Prince Fielder are ideal long term targets for the Cubs.
  • The Cubs offered arbitration to Aramis Ramirez and Carlos Pena, but not Kerry Wood. Wood is still expected to return, while Ramirez will most likely turn down the arbitration offer.
  • Bruce Chen, a pitcher whom the Cubs had some level of interest in, re-signed with Kansas City last week.
  • According to ESPN Chicago, Dale Sveum has the support of Yankees manager Joe Girardi.
  • The Cubs are rumored to have interest in CJ Wilson.
That's it for now, but I'll keep you posted on Everything Cubs as always!
