Sheets "all but signed" by the Cubs?

The Blue Jays will have a scout at tomorrow's workout by free-agent pitcher Ben Sheets, but he's "all but signed by the Chicago Cubs. "




This is a quote from The GlobeandMail.com I dont know how much stock to put into it.

Quite vague. I hope it's correct.

I dont put any stock into it. Never heard of that site, so I doubt there is much truth to it at all

How many times did we hear Peavy was "all but signed by the Cubs"? I expect there won't be any sort of news until after he has thrown. I don't know of many teams that are going to be able to throw the kind of money he wants his way with the unknown of how long he really will stay healthy.

Oh I know. I just post what I hear (unless someone beats me to it cause Im not at a computer)

This "article" makes it sound like if the workout session goes well, then the Cubs will sign him.

They don't have it. It looks like the payroll is going to be $5-6 million less than last year when all is said done.

BTW it sounds like the Rangers are going to sign Sheets.

It's quite ironic, the toughest pitcher in modern MLB history doesn't seem to mind taking chances on guys like Harden and Sheets. Harden and Sheets for $16 million combined is a steal.

Say Harden and Sheets give the Rangers 250+ quality IP. That's a hell of a deal compared to Sabbathia, Santana, Peavy, Zambrano, Beckett, Lackey, Dempster etc.

I don't think he will end up in Chicago and I'm not sure if that's really a bad thing. As talented as he is, his health is always an issue seemingly every year.
