Could the Cubs Non-Tender Travis Wood This Winter?

Could the Cubs Non-Tender Travis Wood This Winter?
At this time last season, the Cubs and their fans were hoping Travis Wood would be a long-term piece of the starting rotation.  Rolling the clock forward to this season, though, things have not gone as planned.  And with the Cubs looking to make a step forward into relevance in 2015, there may not be...

For Cubs, 2015 Pitching Auditions Already Underway
