Contenders that would give Britton a chance to close … well, I can think of one. (Hint: It’s the Cubs. The Chicago Cubs.)
The expected threads are not easy to follow this year.
I kinda doubt that he’s TOTALLY not available, but there’s an underlying kernel of importance here.
Ah, THE Jake Peavy trade. Remember that? It was actually supposed to happen at the Winter Meetings.
I think it’s unlikely, but I suppose we’ll keep note of the possibility. Why not, right?
Yeah, I could see either of those teams. In fact, the more I think about it, the more I see L.A.

The now-former Cub was non-tendered last week.
The Cubs figure to stay involved in the Bryce Harper talks, at least in some capacity.
Hamilton is set to become one of the most interesting bench pieces in baseball. Want.
Since David Ross left, the Cubs haven’t quite been able to fill that void.
If you’re on the hook for the money anyway, might as well try to swap for a player you can use.
