No team would like to knock the Cubs off the top of the mountain more than the rival Cardinals. Remember them? They used to be pretty good.
Turns out the Cardinals’ pursuit of outfielder Dexter Fowler had roots deeper than just baseball.
Dexter Fowler and the St. Louis Cardinals believe they’ve got the goods to play deep into October. They’re coming for all the Cubs’ banners.
St. Louis surrendered its first-round pick in signing free-agent center fielder Dexter Fowler this offseason.
Dexter Fowler will be missed on the North side, and the feeling will be mutual. But he has officially moved on — to the Cubs’ biggest rivals, no less.
The deal is believed to be for five years and is in the $80-90 million.
