Southpaw starter Paul Maholm (formerly of the Pittsburgh Pirates) and the Cubs have reportedly come to terms on a one-year contract worth $4.25mm. According to MLB Trade Rumors, it includes a $6.5mm club option for 2013, with a $500k buyout. Paul himself announced that he was Chiago-bound last night via Twitter (speaking of which, hey! We’ve got another tweeting Cub! Yay.)
Welcome to the
zoo asylum dungeon of shattered dreams and feeble hopes fold, Mr. Maholm. It’s good to have you.
