Great 1st half, but if only there were some other teams in the major leagues that could beat the Braves besides the Mets…smh.
Marcus Stroman is leaving New York for the Windy City.
The 30-year-old right-hander signed a three-year, $71 million contract with the Cubs that includes an opt out after the second season, according to ESPN. According to the report, he will make $25 million in 2022, $25 million in 2023 and $21 million in 2024, and the deal also includes $2 million escalators for 160 innings pitched in ‘22 and ‘23.
We’ll miss Stroman, but $24M a year for your 3rd starter is steep. That said, I’d still give Zack Greinke’s agent a call.
