i'm not ruling out Cobb, but i kind of get the feeling there's a stronger market for him that pushes him beyond what the cubs are willing to commit to, so they jumped on Chatwood. And then, yeah, the other rotation spot will be a bigger impact guy.
Yeah and if they get Ohtani, they would get him for basically nothing (ok fine ~$21m in year 1) and Ohtani seems to be comfortable with a 6 man rotation so it wouldn't be that difficult to see them going after Cobb as well if they wanted to.
