The score and sportscenter have both said the cubs HAVE IN FACT offered a deal to Schmidt. The deal is reported as 3 year 15million!!! Schmidt did say he doesnt want to go to the east coast but last time I check is Chicago isnt on the east coast.. also money talks.. This would be big for the cubs! A veteran pitcher with a killer sinker to follow Big Z... How sweet it is! Now all the has to do is accept the deal!!
Also the yanks have won the bid to talk to Kei Igawa.. 25 million to talk to him.. Wow! I guess the yanks wanted to show the Red Sox that they arnt the only ones throwing money around on Japan's players..
