Cubs sign Jason Marquis

 . . . according to this story.

Three years, $28 million.

According to the article, "The Cubs believe pitching coach Larry Rothchild can fine-tune Marquis and make him a more consistent pitcher. His best season came in 2004, when Marquis went 15-7 with a 3.71 ERA. His career record with Atlanta and St. Louis is 56-52 with a 4.55 ERA."

They say this ends the Cubs' search for a second big arm.

Thoughts?

UPDATE: When I first linked to the story, it said 3 years, $28 million. It now says 3 years, $20 million. Well, that makes me feel a little better. UPDATE 2: [Here http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2691994] is the ESPN story.
