    Blake DeWitt was designated for assignment last week and predictably no team was willing to claim his $1.1 million contract off waivers, so he’ll remain with the Cubs while being removed from the 40-man roster. DeWitt technically had the right to reject his assignment to the minors, but doing so would have meant forfeiting his…

    Forget about 2012 and probably 2013 as well; the Cubs are thinking long-term after luring Theo Epstein from Boston as their new showrunner.

    Earlier this week Troy Renck of the Denver Post reported that the Cubs are interested in Ian Stewart and now he says the Rockies asked for Blake DeWitt in exchange for him. DeWitt doesn’t hit much, but he’s much more versatile and valuable than Stewart defensively and also under team control through 2014. Not so…
