Free agents want to play for Cubs

NASHVILLE — Despite 101 losses in 2012, Cubs president Theo Epstein said there is no shortage of free agents who want to be part of the organization.

Epstein said free agents “believe in the positive direction that we’re going,” and heard about the clubhouse atmosphere under manager Dale Sveum.

“When we express interest, we’ve been hearing back to us, ‘That’s a place we’ve had our eye on and we’d really like to consider playing there,’ which you don’t often hearing coming off a 101-loss season,” he said. — Hobbit

How would Theo know? His teams have never lost this many before.

It doesn't much matter if free agents want to play for the Cubs if they aren't interested in signing them.
