Many Chicago Cubs will become free agents next year. Who do you think will get a contract for next season?
Let’s face it; the Chicago Cubs will be full of free agents in 2021. And to be honest, the clock is ticking on them in regards to signing them. So, who’s it going to be? There are a few names in there who could be a viable resource.
But it’s going to be signing them that’ll be not easy. A pitcher that has a $25 million club option and hasn’t been worth that much. Or a pitcher has an $850K deal, but that has to be added to it because he has been huge this season. Maybe an outfielder who plays all three spots? All three, or nothing at all? That is the question.
We have all that and then some as far as players who the Cubs should be on the lookout for. Theo Epstein and his rebuild will not play this year. But he should be done by 2021, and the Cubs will find a new President of Baseball Operations. Epstein has a ’10 year plan’ in place, and he’s going to keep it.
Editors Note: I picked a handful of club options or free agents, to be fair
