What a surprise, the Chicago Cubs signed Anibal Sanchez! The Cubs bolster their rotation and now give themselves a very solid rotation with Matt Garza, Anibal, Jeff Samardzija, Scott Baker, Scott Feldman, and Travis Wood! Everyone rejoice! Not long after news broke that the Cubs “signed” Sanchez, reports surfaced that it wasn’t a done deal and the Detroit Tigers were still in the running. Of course Sanchez ended up signing with the Tigers for 80 million instead of the reported 5 years 75 million the Cubs had “signed” him for. What a joke of a franchise.
Theo Epstein was brought in to fix, build, and turn this franchise around. So far, he’s been at the front of THREE botched signings/trades. What do I mean by botched? His staff leaking TWO completed trades before they were official, and now Sanchez. Dempster was traded to Atlanta….oops. Carlos Marmol was traded for Dan Haren….my bad….Anibal Sanchez signs with the Cubs….eek.
Are you kidding me Cubs? What kind of Mickey Mouse organization are you running over there? Here’s a thought, keep your mouths shut until the ink is dry. How many times is that going to happen? Once, okay…but THREE times? Wow.
Once again, the Cubs show that they’re a complete joke of an organization. The good news in all this? They were at least willing to spend some money. I guess Ricketts isn’t broke afterall. The bad news is? They’re still the Cubs.
It will be a very long year I’m sure, but hey- at least they’ll be good in 2018!
