I honestly don't know how much money the Cubs will have but I do know most of these are possible. This is my dream 2015 scenario.

Over 2 offseasons:

Re-sign: Matt Garza 5yr/ 100 mil

Robinson Cano: 8yr/180mil

Clayton Kershaw: 10yr/275mil

Pablo Sandoval: 6yr/108mil

2015 rotation:

Clayton Kershaw
David Price
Jeff Samardzija
Matt Garza
Edwin Jackson

LR: Alberto Cabrera
LR: Starlin Peralta
LR: Lendy Castillo
MR: Rafael Dolis
MR: James Russel

The Rays would have no interest in Vitters or Rusin, I think.  Baez+Jackson+second tier prospect+spare parts probably gets that deal done.  Remember that the Cubs only gave up two starting-caliber prospects to land Garza (Archer and Lee (Guyer projected as a 4th OF, and Chirinos as a backup catcher)).  Baez is a better prospect than Archer or Lee, so any package containing Baez is better than the Garza package almost by definition.  


I don't see Cano reaching free agency.  And I'm not convinced Kershaw or Sandoval will.  It may take a trade to land either of those.
