Charles the Cat is at it again with another scoop. We’ve known that the Cubs were interested in Eovaldi for the past few weeks, but Charles says the Cubs and Rays have talked about Chris Archer as well.
Now this could be just Theo asking about Archer’s price, which would obviously be higher than Eovaldi’s. It seems Cubs fans have dreamt about getting Chris Archer for the past few years, but things have never been elevated. Archer could be very reasonable for the Cubs. He’s not the top guy of the Rays’ rotation right now, and his stats aren’t looking the best either. Throwing stats aside, I’m sure Cubs fans would rather take Archer than Eovaldi.
