Chicago Cubs News: How the new CBA could affect the Cubs

The Chicago Cubs won’t be treated any different than the rest of the league under the new CBA. But it doesn’t mean that certain things won’t affect them more than others.

The Chicago Cubs and the rest of the MLBPA came to an agreement with the owners and avoided any possible work stoppage. The new CBA is in place, and there are some notable changes to it. From the 10-day DL to the All-Star Game meaning, well, nothing again–some things may cause the Cubs to think differently in the coming years.

There’s always one or two names that will be on the lips of everyone at each Winter Meeting. This year, one of those names is Chris Sale. With the White Sox scuffling, could the lefty ace be dealt? The demands will be high. But would the Sox consider dealing with their neighbors to the north? The reports concerning that thought seem to vary.

The New York Yankees looked to get ahead of the pack, signing Matt Holliday to a one-year deal worth $13 million. A career .300 hitter (.303), Holliday has struggled to stay healthy in the past two seasons. The Yankees hope that this deal will still leave them room to make a possible run at free agent Edwin Encarnacion.
