Chicago Cubs: Will they sign a player or hit free agency?

Again, time will tell. But let me reiterate–it’s not going to be pretty. Billy Hamilton was supposed to be headed for the Cubs–five years ago. He came from the New York Mets at the trade deadline–2020. He was with three teams in two years.

They don’t have a lot to spend. Through signing players or free agents? Bottom of the barrel for the Cubs–but doesn’t mean you can’t find it. Jeremy Jeffress and Jesse Chavez are two who found hope in signing a deal. Let’s hope Jeffress can find it AND sign with the Cubs. Chavez? He went back to the Texas Rangers got beat up, allowing a 4.85 and 6.88 ERA, respectively.

You never know what’s going to happen when signing a player or hitting free agency. It’s a crapshoot. You can get lucky with Jeffress and hit the jackpot. Or you can go the other route. Let’s pick the former.
