Cubs after Anibal Sanchez? (Signs with Tiger 5/$80mil)

Rosenthal:
Sources: #Cubs in serious discussions with Anibal Sanchez. Deal could be 5 years/$75 million. #Tigers still a threat.

Done deal was this discussed as a possibility before?

I really thought something like this was coming, either Sanchez or Jackson. Nice.

Jim Bowden says it's done too:

Anibal Sanchez has signed with the Chicago Cubs


Let's start the countdown until Kaplan emphatically tweets that this is "NOT DONE". Over/under 2 hours?

This is going to be a really solid rotation. Though I would have to think this signing means Garza or Wood are going to gone very soon.

Not a big Anibal fan but 5/75 is a good deal

.500ish team now. If we actually got positive variance for once we could conceivably make the playoffs.

@JonHeymanCBS: anibal's agent Gene Mato said he's still talking to other teams. #tigers have been involved all winter, like cubs

Kyle hates this move because it contradicts his crusade.

I'd prefer Edwin but I'm not sure how others feel.

Hope the news is true.

Morosi on MLB network just said Cubs out in front but not done deal. Still talking with Tigers & Rangers might enter the picture...drat

And...Matt Garza welcomes him to the Cubs on twitter just like he did on the Haren trade.
