I guess out of all the openings out there he thought CHI has the best chance. In that division maybe he made the right choice.

Management must have swore to be players this off season as far as free agents go & trade possibilities went.

Any ARod rumors to CHI out there now?

the arod to the cubs rumor has been floating for about a month now.

Now if they move AROD back to SS and resign ARAM to play 3B then I think Cub fans would be very happy. Combine that with a healthy DLEE and if they find a good closer...not bad at all. ;-D

what is arods salary 16 mill a year(after texas paying 8 mill a year or so annually)? aramis is going to be demanding somthing very simuliar to that. id take arod, throw him back at short, in a heartbeat.

Yankees would be stupid to trade Arod.

Plus 8Rod will be asking for an extension.
Who ever takes him on will be signing him to a ton of money till he is almost 40
