The Cubs were briefly connected to the in-need-of-a-bounce-back infielder, but he’s getting $5 million from a better fit.
Chicago Cubs Rumors
The rumor mill doesn’t stop for Hall of Fame debates. It doesn’t even slow down.
There may not be anything doing here, but I think it’s still worth following for now.
The righty may already have a five-year, $110 million offer.
A surprisingly busy and rumor-heavy long weekend. Zobrist emerged as the big name, but there was quite a bit else going on.

Did the Giants just back out? If so, it’s becoming harder and harder to predict where one of the best remaining arms will wind up.
Moncada is still not cleared to sign with an MLB team, which is significant. Also: the young man is a beast.
His name has come up a couple times before, and John Baker just sent out a pointed message on Twitter, which was confirmed by Ken Rosenthal.
A final Lukewarm Stove to close out the year, mostly looking at the outfield.
