The headline-grabbing move out of Cubs Convention won’t be the megadeal that keeps Jake Arrieta pitching at Wrigley Field for the rest of his career.
The 2016 Cubs Convention kicks off Friday night at 6 p.m.
Jake Arrieta made the Cubs feel invincible, bringing a sense of swagger to a young team that needed it and now gets a $272 million upgrade with Jason Heyward, Ben Zobrist and John Lackey.
If you thought fans were excited when Jason Heyward chose to sign in Chicago, just imagine how the Cubs must be feeling.
HAZLETON, Pa. – Not even Joe Maddon can talk his way around this. Not when the Cubs just dropped $272 million on Jason Heyward, Ben Zobrist and John Lackey.
