Outside the Cubs Boxcar plays chicken, part 6

In which we add a pitcher and a catcher and do some farming

Mike Minor has been signed to a deal with the Rangers, and is no longer a subject for this exercise. Ian Krol, Jake McGee, and Brandon Morrow are still available. We’re going to let them languish on the wire for just a little bit longer and continue through the alphabet, with N, O, P, Q, and R being under consideration in this installment and S, T, U, W, X, Y, and Z in the next, after which we’ll do a final roster tweak and start talking about money, finishing up as the Winter Meetings start, five days from now.

Here’s the Free Agent Tracker, so you can follow along, and previous installments 1. 2. 3. 4. 5., so you can read or re-read and follow the “logic”.

  1. Arismendy Alcantara
  2. Albert Almora Jr.
  3. Dario Alvarez
  4. Alexi Amarista
  5. Jake Arrieta
  6. Javier Baez
  7. Kris Bryant
  8. Eddie Butler
  9. Trevor Cahill
  10. Victor Caratini
