These type of rumors are hard to tell if there made up or if there actually true... the following rumor could be true but i will first say that many articles have stated that Schmidt wants to stay on the west coast and that the cubs have no intrest in level 1 Starters through free agency. The names thrown around like Meche, Marquis, and Lilly are level 2 or 3 starters not a level one lik e Schmidt is. now having said that heres a rumor that was on insidetheivy.com, cubs.com, prosportsdaily.com message boards.. Once again this is a message board rumors, take from you want from it, personally i will take it with a grain of salt. (though i hope its true!!!!) lol
heres the entire message
This story is coming from InsideTheIvy.com (CubsTalk)
Bruce Levine on ESPN 1000 in Chicago reported on Monday the Cubs have offered Schmidt a 3-year, $45 million dollar contract. Levine said the Cubs are not interested in signing Barry Zito. And mentioned the fact free agents will want to come to Chicago after the signing of Soriano.
