Tracy Ringolsby of the Rocky Mountain News has overheard a few possible offers to free agents.
He says that J.D. Drew is "expected to sign a two-year, $30 million deal with Boston." It makes sense for the Sox to pay an extra $2MM or so annually to keep the years down on this deal.
Meanwhile, in a separate article, Larry LaRue writes, "Boston has offered J.D. Drew a huge contract - and Lou Piniella's Cubs have matched it."
While i dont feel like Drew is a 15 mil guy.. he can do nothing but help the cubs. Hes a left handed bat with power, great outfield arm, and is a rbi machine!!!
I have a feeling here will be at least an announcement today that we signed a impact player, or at least traded for one.. Just a hunch tho.
