    Discuss. (Details coming)

    I like it (depending on the $$). Has a lot to prove, mostly that he's healthy. Like the move by Theo and company

    Abide!

    Sun Times is saying it is a one year deal.

    Peripherals are really nice. Doesn't walk a million guys like many of the pitchers we've talked about. Extreme fly ball pitcher, so pray the schedule doesn't give him the wind blowing out at Wrigley too many times.

    Obviously, health a huge wild card as he missed all of last season after forearm surgery.

    Reportedly 1yr/5.5 with potential 1.5 in escalators. Definitely worth it.

    Wait, apparently it was TJS. So we basically get to pay for his rehab year.

    Fine as a fifth starter. As long as we aren't picturing him as anything more than that, I'm OK.

    Money isn't bad. More than likely will live up to the contract. HR/FB and FB% scare me. Should be nothing more than a 4-5 starter.

    Guys he has to be worth essentially 1 win...pretty sure he'll reach that, even in a rehab year (he's averaged 2.4 per season over basically seven seasons)

    Cubs Sign Scott Baker to 1 Year Deal

    Like this move. It's definitely a low risk, high reward deal and he will make a good addition to our rotation


    ONE GOAL ACHIEVED!

    Wonder if this means we aren't getting Liriano now.

    Decent move, I think we'll see another 2 pitchers get signed (more than likely Liriano my guess and another pen/possible starter Brett Myers possible?) But this a decent move with possibility to pay some decent dividends.

    BULLS PLAYOFF PUSH 2014!!
