Some of the writers behind BP Wrigleyville get together to talk about the Chicago Cubs. In this debut episode, we take a look at the Cub prospects that made the Baseball Prospectus Top 101 prospect list and what that means for the system. Believe it or not, Dexter Fowler is still a free agent, and Matt Murton is back with the club after his stint in Japan.
For the stat of the week, Isaac Bennett takes a look at Baserunning Runs and the surprising player who is on top of the leaderboard.
Houston Rockets coach J.B. Bickerstaff called his team “broken” recently, and with the team currently out of the playoffs Dwight Howard could be on the move.
However, trading Howard may not be as easy as it sounds in theory as colleague Ben DuBose explained in a SheridanHoops column.
Trades talks are heating up with less than a week until the trade deadline on February 18.
Another player who may be dealt at the deadline is Phoenix Suns forward Markieff Morris who has wanted out since the summer when the team dealt his brother, Marcus, to the Detroit Pistons.
With that in mind, Michael Scotto of SheridanHoops.com joined Sportsnet 590 The Fan radio to discuss the latest on trade rumblings around the league and what the Rockets will do with Dwight Howard.

Doc Stanley' Words Of Wit And Wisdom
Carmelo Anthony's name is in the rumor mill yet again. Well, actually, it never left. He has been mentioned in trade scuttle ever since the New York Knicks, a team on the mend, re-signed him to a five-year, $120 million-plus deal in 2014.
This time, though, Frank Isola of the New York Daily News has him linked to a three-team deal with the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers that would end with Melo playing beside LeBron James in C-Town. The framework in question, as you will hear, is unlikely.
But the constant chatter, coupled with rookie Kristaps Porzingis' meteoric rise through the NBA ranks, begets a more general issue: Should the Knicks be looking to trade Anthony now, or even at all? Hardwood Knocks breaks it down.
