No Surprise: Cubs Don’t Offer Arbitration to Harden, Others

Chicago Cubs

As we noted yesterday, the Chicago Cubs were not expected to offer arbitration to any of their free agents – including pitchers Rich Harden and Kevin Gregg, and outfielder Reed Johnson – and today, they didn’t.

I won’t rehash my disappointment and confusion with respect to the decision not to trade Rich Harden at the deadline, and then the decision not to offer him arbitration. Suffice it to say, the Cubs will get no additional compensation for Rich Harden, and he will depart from the team.
