Hopefully, if cubs want To keep me RT
Doesn't sound like it RT
Money owed I guess RT
He hasn't been at Wrigley for two months now. I originally wanted to bring him back on a new one year cheap contract, but now I'm not so sure.

Camp was obviously a great signing as well.
The return on Malholm made him a great signing, too.
I don't think Stewart counts since he was acquired in what could go down as the worst trade they've made in decades. Colvin looks like a legit starter and DJ looks like a decent backup infielder at worst.

What is more important to me is this. Every player mentioned above is a short term rental unlike the mega-deals. Whether they played well or not, the Cubs still would be out of it this year. The positive side is none of those signings will hurt us long term, and some may help.
My suspicion is they will up the ante this year because they now know what they have and do not have at the major league level.......and the minor league level. They know what puzzle pieces they need next year and beyond so they can shop more intelligently.
