Over the last week, the Cubs made a slew of moves to shuffle around both their active and 40-man rosters.
Adbert Alzolay (activated from 60-day injured list), Jared Young (selected from Triple-A Iowa) and Esteban Quiroz (selected from Iowa) are now on the big league club, while moves involving Frank Schwindel (DFA'd and granted unconditional release), Sean Newcomb (DFA'd and sent outright to Iowa) and Rafael Ortega (placed on 60-day IL) opened up spots on both rosters.
With so little time left in the year, those moves have added another wrinkle to the decision-making the Cubs' front office will be doing this offseason — and more specifically, the decisions they'll make surrounding who to keep on the 40-man roster before the Rule 5 Draft.

After a week off due to Labor Day last Monday, we are back with another set of Monday morning thoughts.

That's a year when offseason additions and jumps from the young guys might actually push them to being much more competitive than they've been this season.
So as we get closer to a very important offseason in this rebuild, that's what we should be talking about. And that's where these thoughts from yours truly are centered on.
Let's get into it. Here are some Cubs thoughts for Monday morning.
Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts can often be seen roaming the ballpark during home games at Wrigley Field, chatting with fans who approach him. Now, what exactly do those fans say to him during those interactions? “The fans are great,” Ricketts said Saturday during an interview with about a half-dozen reporters on the Wrigley Field concourse. “I mean, I walk around...
Back when Cubs manager David Ross was in his playing days as a catcher, he could take a hard hit in a collision at home plate and nobody would’ve batted an eye. Having debuted during the 2002 season, Ross came up years ahead of Major League Baseball adopting rules to limit those collisions in the name of player safety. But...
