We had a good one in Fowler lined up but he decided to go with a team that could win a world series.


Duquette refused to do the player option.

That's not entirely the truth. it was reported from various sources that Fowler originally agreed to a contract offered. But then, right before he was about to sign it, wanted to add the player option. IMO (and the opinions of others), the Cubs contacted him at the last moment and he wanted to find a way out of his agreement with the Orioles and knew that they would not go with a player option.
