Gallardo gets three years and $35 million. Will the Orioles now do the second thing we’ve been expecting? Implications for the Cubs there.
Chicago Cubs Rumors
The high end of that range wouldn’t be a terrible deal for Fowler. Hopefully it gets done soon.
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.
The price tag could simply grow too large on Lazarito. But there are other options out there.
Gallardo’s price tag could be quite large, and Fowler might be the next to drop thereafter.
It sounds like teams are still waiting on a decision. It’s a big one, so the young man can take his time a bit.
The timeline for the brothers’ arrival could be complicated. But their impact could be significant.
At that price, even though he’s not an obvious fit for the Cubs, they’d have to consider it, right?
That’s the first time we’ve heard a sourced connection between the Cubs and the Cuban prospect.
The rumors won’t go away, but I suppose that could simply be because the two sides keep in contact.
