Does Bonds and Drew affect the Cubs, and Jones?

As far as I've seen the actual contracts have not been signed for either Bonds or Drew. There has to be a lawyer or two on this board, what is the chances of these deals not getting done once there supposedly has been an agreement in principal. I find it odd Boras has been so quiet regarding his client, the Red Sox were the only team offering anywhere near the money he was demanding. And Bonds just seems to be inching his way towards an indictment. Unless I am wrong, ink hasn't been put to paper on either guys contract, which means the teams can still back out. Which affects the Cubs as both teams would be searching for outfield help, and we've got a reasonably priced, but disgruntled Jones on the bench.
I also can't help but wonder if the Red Sox/Drew deal does collapse, do the Cubs take a flier on a one year deal as Boras tries to re-establish value, for a big contract next year?
Just random thoughts as I watch the Colts and Ravens on a snowy Iowa night, and dream of spring training.
