Cubs Sign LaTroy Hawkins (Or So It Appears)

The proverbial "sources say" that the Cubs have signed Minnesota Twins setup man LaTroy Hawkins to a three-year contract, worth anywhere from $11 million to $15 million, depending on which source you believe.

No one's talking on the record about this, pending his physical, so I'll reserve full comment till later; I'll only say now that on the surface, this appears to be a terrific signing, at a reasonable price.

The above article also mentions that Hawkins is a Chicago-area native, having attended West Side High School in Gary, Indiana.

More tomorrow, or whenever this is "officially" announced.
