The World Series should never go into November to begin with.

Bummer.  Northwestern will have to forfeit.

I believe that 60-day IL becomes available on 2/15 when pitchers and catchers report.

As there is typically a lag of several days from reports that Player X “to sign with” a club and the later “official” club-announced signing, we’re getting close to a date when another FA might reportedly come to an agreement with Cubs without Cubs having to DFA a current 40-man player. So, that’s a good thing.

Thanks, reb.  Yeah, at this point it would be unwise to formally/administratively finalize a deal prior to the 60-day date.   I wonder if Hoyer has a deal (or more) all done and ready, just waiting for that date?

My guess is that he already has one or two lined up.  But I suspect that they will not be what we would consider impact signings.  Other than a closer, they already have a rather deep middle relief bench.
