Ervin Santana is out 10-12 weeks after finger surgery. Does this get the starting pitcher market moving?

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

Probably not much. I read with the off days early on and ability to go a 4-man that he only misses like 3-4 starts if he only is out those 10-12 weeks

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the Cubs have "barely engaged" in contract talks with free agent starting pitcher Jake Arrieta.

Nightengale goes so far as to say that a reunion between Arrieta and the Cubs is as "unlikely as a Bill Belichick comedy show." Well then. He also reports that other teams seem concerned about the lack of contact; wondering if Chicago knows something about the 31-year-old's health. Arrieta went 14-10 for the Cubs in 2017, registering a 3.53 ERA and striking out 163 batters in 168 1/3 innings.

Didn't Nightengale report the Cubs had offered $110M to Jake. I sure hope someone barely engages me for $110M...
