A lot of my comment posters are asking me for the link on the completion of the Cubs sale and it is located here. It is under the Jake Peavy section of the article by Gordon Wittenmyer. Here is what the section says according to the Suntimes-
The Cubs are a veteran starter short of their preferred roster, and with the sale of the team to the Ricketts family nearing completion, the 2007 Cy Young Award winner for the San Diego Padres becomes the sequel to the Brian Roberts Trade Watch of last spring training.
Hopefully this clears up any confusion and we hear more on this the coming days.
I will keep you posted.
