This week’s episode focuses on the Cubs signing of Marcus Stroman to a three-year, $71 million contract. It’s the biggest deal the team has signed a free agent to in nearly four years. How much does the Stroman signing change the Cubs’ outlook this offseason. Plus, we talk about a report linking the Cubs to Carlos Correa.
The White Sox made two free agent signings and although some fans are upset by the lack of big-name acquisitions we go over the list of good players still available.
Prior to the lockout MLB free agency was in a frenzy. Which signings surprised us the most and who would we have wanted that has already signed?
