Strasburg Newsbeat

First Strasburg, Then Arrieta

“The misconception is that Scott wants everyone to go to free agency,” Arrieta said of Boras. “I made it clear I like Chicago. I think everyone knows that. If I had it my way, I’d stay here. That’s just one side of the story. We’ll see.”

When asked whether he’d give a hometown discount to the Cubs, Arrieta flatly said “no” while shaking his head.

Arrieta said “aces get 7 years”—just as Strasburg got—so think of that as a starting point. And think $200 million as one, as well.

Boras is 63 and might be planning his retirement.
