    Shouldn't be more than $5 million, maybe even less. Adds depth to the rotation options and if he doesn't make the rotation, can be plugged right into the bullpen easily. So depending on the money which I expect $3-5M for 1 year, I like the move for the Cubs. If he starts I think he is somewhere with an ERA around 4.2-4.5 and if the bullpen somewhere around 3.8-4.1. Good deal.

    #Cubs and RHP Scott Feldman have agreed to terms on a one-year contract. Feldman has pitched for the #Rangers over the last 8 seasons.

    If he gets more than $5 million, I don't like it as much.

    Blech. This better not replace a McCarthy or a Marcum and hopefully is instead pitching depth. I don't really like his career DIPS all that much. As depth I like it. As much more...not a fan.

    Nice move. Like it better than committing to the bigger name but oft-injured Brandon McCarthy, who is so Hansel right now.

    Good arm and an underrated FA. Can give rotation innings and has bullpen experience.

    This is a very good signing IMO for you guys. He can dominate sometimes, but sometimes he can flat out suck. I always thought he would suit better in the NL. To top it off, he's a very good hitter.

    That sure doesn't sound like a depth contract. He got more than Baker.

    Sounds like a Garza-Shark-Baker-Feldman-Wood rotation coming.

    Agreed. You don't sgin a guy for more than $6 millions to be a swingman. Fwiw, and it's not very much, Feldman is best suited to be a swingman. I assume he isn't going to be a late inning reliever.

    Sounds like or is as it stands on November 27th? His offseason hasn't even really started.

    Because of this, Carlos Villanueva becomes redundant. Still hoping for a Marcum signing, as I still think Garza or Samardzija gets dealt before the season starts.

    this move doesn't make me happy, but it doesn't make me angry.

    Doesn't make much sense to go signing a handful of pitchers like Baker and Feldman to deals that max out around $7-$8m just to have them toil in middle relief, when the one thing we've got, are some MR prospects who are ML ready.

    I was fine with one of these types + a better SP. I'm not so certain how excited I am about a few of these guys filling out the rotation. They offer, neither, upside above mid-roation guys nor should they fetch a nice return at the deadline.

    They're boring and necessary moves on their own. Together, I find the Baker and Feldman deals to be somewhat redundant.

    I'm not losing sleep over not signing Carlos Villanueva. Feldman's a better version of him anyway.
