Poker face

Maybe that is all it is. Poker. The silence does not mean there is no action behind the scenes. Certainly, Theo & Company are actively speaking with potential targets. The previous seasons were laced with rumors and information about what the Chicago Cubs were doing.

This year, hushed.

With the focus on Ohtani, whatever is going on with other players is not gaining attention. Fair enough. Winter meetings begin in earnest this weekend. Once Ohtani and Giancarlo Stanton make decisions, other deals will fly.

The fact there are several major needs and silence coming from the Cubs’ offices is disturbing to me.

Maybe it is just me.

Next: Ohtani or Harper? Or Bust?

Still, it all means one of two things. Either the Cubs will only land a few solid players, thinking to add to what they have in the dugout already. Or they make a major splash (or two) and electrify their fans.

I prefer option number two.
