I hope we get the full story. I have feelings, and they are discontented feelings. (HOLY UPDATE BELOW!)

If a deal fell through solely because the Cubs couldn’t make the money work – which we all knew was possible – it will be very disappointing. To be sure, there’s no way the Cubs would have balked at the prospect. Pereda is a legit catching prospect, but not a guy who’d hold this up. Either the Tigers backed out, there was a medical issue, or money was an issue.

We’ll see soon enough.

UPDATE: PLOT TWIST FOR HUGS?!?!?

UPDATE 2: OMFG PLOT TWIST BABY:
