Ramirez tells CUbs he's not exercising $16 million option, as expected. Cubs save $2 million buyout, get draft picks.

Combined with the Bears bye week & NBA lockout, it is has been nonstop. (Unfortunately no cares about hockey still)

I would gladly trade the non-stop Louisville/Kentucky basketball talk, even in May-September, for the non-stop Cubs talk.

I really don't think Epstein will have an open checkbook, especially in his first year. That is how Hendry put the Cubs into the situation they currently find themselves in. Saber guys usually work better on limited funds too (Tampa Bay is exhibit A). Interesting dynamics this offseason. You have two first baseman on the market and a shiny new hire by the Cubs. Instinct tells you to make an even bigger splash and get one of these once in a lifetime guys (Pujols/Fielder) away from another team in your very division nonetheless, but the right guy for the job may be the one who was already there this year (Pena). I think Epstein should put his focus and resources elsewhere on the roster. I also think you let Quade ride out his deal and then let him go next year.

QUOTE
Monday, they declined the $3 million option of pitcher Jeff Samardzija.

The Cubs can cut Samardzija's $2.8 million salary by as much as 20 percent, paying him $2.24 million in 2012.

Samardzija signed a five-year, $10 million deal on the day of the 2007 Cubs Convention, with options in 2012 and 2013. He has a $3.5 million option in 2013, when he'll be arbitration-eligible.

QUOTE
The Cubs also must work out a deal to pay the Red Sox compensation for the Epstein signing. Commissioner Bud Selig gave the two teams until Tuesday to cut a deal, threatening to become the sole arbiter if they could not get anything done.

I can think of a Chicago team that could really use Samardzija right about now.

Eh, that ship has sailed. I cant really see him being much more than a Brian Finneran at this point in his career, it wasnt like he was blessed with amazing speed

Meh. They already have one grindy white WR, they don't need another one.
