Cub Tracks Tests the Waters

Is the media all wet? Are the Cubs in hot water after "missing out" on David Price?

From Comcast Sportsnet Chicago:

  • Patrick Mooney: Will Cubs make another splash in free agency? Pre-David Price signing, Mooney explores the possibilities, versus published quotes from Cub execs that they won't overspend.
  • Mooney: Cubs have options with David Price heading to Red Sox for 217 million. Those options might include John Lackey, Jeff Samardzija, and Mike Leake. They probably don't include Zack Greinke. That rumor's just about extinguished.
  • And, ICYMI late Wednesday, Mooney has the scoop on the Cubs' tendering contracts to all their arb-eligible players except Jack Leathersich (recovering from TJS) and Ryan Cook, who we barely knew. Clayton Richard and Rex Brothers agreed to terms, avoiding arb entirely.

From the Chicago Tribune:

  • Clock ticking on Cubs after losing out on David Price. The Red Sox's record-setting agreement with free-agent left-hander David Price doesn't affect the Cubs' mission to add two starting pitchers. But the Cubs could find themselves relegated to trading highly coveted prospects if they can't sign a free-agent pitcher.
