Officially Official: Cubs Trade Darvish, Caratini *and* Cash to San Diego for Davies and a Package of Prospects


I’m not going to re-litigate the merits of this deal, bid farewell to #Yu #Darvish and #Victor #Caratini, or discuss the market fallout of trading another ace to #San #Diego. #We’ve done all of that already today (and probably have more of it to go in the coming days and weeks ahead). #Instead, I just want you to know that the deal is officially official (all the players exactly as already known), now reported by the #Cubs, themselves.

#And the only “surprise” is that the #Cubs are also throwing in some cash to help cover #Darvish’s remaining $62 million over the next three years (finishing second in the #Cy #Young race escalated his contract, though I have seen people still reporting that he’s owed just $59M):

#How much cash are the #Cubs kicking in?

#According to #Jordan #Bastian, $3 million of the remaining $62 million.

(#Kevin #Acee had previously reported $5 million, but I’ve seen $3 million more often *and* #Acee also thought #Darvish was owed just $59 million, so I think he had some of his numbers wrong).

#In any case, I promised not to get into it tonight, because whatever at this point. #But yeah, the #Cubs not only included #Caratini *and* took #Davies’ roughly $8 million due for 2021, they also kicked in $3 more million to help offset #Darvish. #Goodnight.

#At least they can extend #Javy #Baez now, right? RIGHT?
