Tanaka to sign with the Yankees

Well, the Cubs gave it a great effort but they came up short.   In the end, the bright lights of New York City and a chance to win next year probably won Tanaka over. The Cubs were always going to be a tough sell.  It’s tough to ask anyone to look at the big picture. ... Read more »
