Bill Ladson of MLB.com says the recently non-tender Pirated Matt Capps will have a decision tomorrow night of where to sign. He is deciding from the Nationals and Cubs. He will be the closer for the Nationals and the set-up man in Chicago. We heard what the Nation offer him but we don't know what the Cubs offered. The only think we know is the Cubs made a offer to him.
Capps already has 2 friends on the Cubs with John Grabow and Tom Gorzelanny who they acquire before the trade deadline in 2009. Tom Gorzelanny's wife and Matt Capps wife are friends and Capps family love Chicago. John Grabow told Carrie Muskat that he is convicing Capps to sign with the Cubs.
This is how I figure it out, if he wants the money go the the Nationals because I don't think the Cubs will offer the same amount or more. If he wants to win go to the Cubs where they are able to win. I am like 90% positive Capps will a Cubs by the end of tomorrow night.
I will keep you posted as we await the decision to tomorrow night.
