While they continue to dance around possible deals for players ranging from Jake Peavy and Milton Bradley to backup catcher Paul Bako, the Cubs have yet to make a player move this week in Las Vegas. One thing they have accomplished, however, is securing the admiration of superagent Scott Boras.
According to (Boras), the Cubs have proved they are recession-proof in the way they have gone about their business despite significant roadblocks.
"You have a club where the parent has filed for bankruptcy, and the baseball team is operating very well and they're out there offering multi-million-dollar contracts to players and signing them," ...Boras said. "We're our own industry, and the Cubs are the best example. You see something in bankruptcy and you see a subsidiary that's very successful and kind of operates independent of its parent."
