It's clear the Cubs want to address their rotation this offseason but will they be big players for the top free agent pitchers, Zack Greinke and David Price?
The Cubs are issuing 60 full playoff shares from a record-high MLB players' pool that totals more than $69 million.
The Cubs continued adding to their bullpen depth on Wednesday, dealing for left-handed pitcher Rex Brothers. The 27-year-old is 16-11 with 61 holds, 20 saves and a 3.42 ERA in 286 career appearances.

4yTheo Epstein is all about doing things "The Cubs Way" and has already added some of the top executives to his front office by hiring Jed Hoyer and Jason McLeod away from the Padres on Wednesday night.
4yBack in late August, the Cubs were out a GM and the Red Sox were in first place. If even one thing had gone differently since then, Theo Epstein might not be right here, right now.
4yHe won't be facing the challenge of winning more than the "Evil Empire" New York Yankees any longer. Now, Theo Epstein faces a whole set of different, but equally difficult, challenges as Cubs President.
