Breaking News: Cubs Sign Fukudome

from network member, Mets Bullpen:

Dave Kaplan of WGN Radio reports that the Cubs have signed Kosuke Fukudome to a four-year deal. Kaplan says it's for about $50MM, maybe a hair more. Fukudome will be a free agent after the fourth year; there will be no arbitration.

...well, we knew that the Mets weren't gonna go near him, but I'm happy a team like the Braves or Phillies didn't get him, as I am pretty sure they were interested...

I am excited to see Fukudome play as a major leaguer, because a lot of hype has been going around about him lately.
