Chicago Cubs Rumors
Restructured contracts, failed three-way trades, remaining free agents, contract extensions and more from the rumor mill.
The Cubs’ Owner and Chairman spoke to various folks today, including me, about a range of important topics.

His right-handed bat and excellent center field defense could have been used by the Cubs, but that’s not the way it went.

Sounds like the Orioles may get a steal on Fowler. And the Cubs may finally get a draft pick
Gallardo gets three years and $35 million. Will the Orioles now do the second thing we’ve been expecting? Implications for the Cubs there.

Spring Training is basically here, and Fowler is still unsigned. That may not be the case for much longer.
Lazarito could be waiting, Shohei Ohtani is in Arizona, the Gurriel Brothers are somewhere secret, and much more.
When you consider how else things could have gone, and how they went for other teams, the Cubs’ series of moves looks all the better.
Dexter Fowler holding things up, $500 million for Bryce Harper, a trade for Mike Trout and much more.
