No Chan Ho Park for the Cubs, Signs with Yankees

Chicago Cubs Rumors, MLB News and Rumors

Well, if the Chicago Cubs were looking to use their Ryan Theriot winnings on a reliever, it won’t be Chan Ho Park.

The Yankees have signed former Phillies reliever Chan Ho Park to a 1-year $1.2million deal, with incentives to make another $300K.

Park had considered an offer from the Cubs, where he would have started but felt he had a better chance of winning a World Series title with the defending champs.


Well, duh, he’s got a better chance with the Yankees. Can’t blame him for that part. Can blame him for turning down $3 million from the Phillies earlier in the offseason.
