The BIGGEST Cubs Rumor
I thought the Cubs Rumor Mill and Hot Stove would take a long weekend off, but boy was I wrong. There is a report in ‘Cubs News From The Wire (scroll down) from scout.com and Yahoo Sports titled ‘Hot Stove: The Greatest Infield Ever?’ that is UNBELIEVABLE. This one is the BIGGEST RUMOR of them all.
The report says the Cubs have all but finalized a deal the would bring Rafael Furcal to the Cubs for the next 5 years with a mutual option for a 6th year and could pay Furcal as much as $100 million with significant performance bonuses. I heard on ESPN 1000 in Chicago yesterday the Cubs were going to offer Furcal a 4 year deal in the $36 million dollar range….but that’s what rumors are. Here is the big one….
I will reserve my opinion for now, but I will say I do not like losing Ronny Cedeno and gaining a VERY weak fielder in Alfonso Soriano. I am concerned what kind of team chemistry would exist on the Northside.
Stay VERY tuned to this one. This could be the ‘splash’ the Cubs need??!!??
