Cubs Have Been Aggressive In Talks

Nov 27, 2011 3:21 PM EST

The Cubs have been busy this offseason with Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer in place as the team's new president and general manager, respectively.

"They have been very aggressive with a wide range of free agents and have been in on trade talks with at least a dozen clubs," writes Jim Bowden of ESPN.com.

"What's been interesting is for a club that struggled so much in 2011, the conversations have not been limited to long-term solutions, but rather, they've included everyone from prospects to one-year stop-gap players," Bowden added.
