The Cubs are announcing the signing of Jason Heyward to an eight-year, $184 million dollar contract with two opt-outs. Here's the place to discuss his press conference and anything else Jason Heyward-related. Welcome to Chicago, Jason!
Heyward was wearing number 22, which means Addison Russell will need a new number. No word on if Heyward gave Russell anything for it.
