ORLANDO–It is only the first day of the annual winter meetings of the Major League Baseball general managers, and things are already heating up like the hot plate Cubs G.M. Jim Hendry keeps at the foot of his bed. No, not that one. That’s a George Foreman. No, behind the mini fridge. To the left of Ramen Mountain.
The Cubs have put an offer on the table to left-handed starter Theodore Roosevelt Lilly. Hendry was kind enough to completely clear off the table before putting his offer on it, although he did leave bite marks on one corner.
“FLP!” will stay on top of any breaking Cubs news from the winter meetings.
