Huge News: Cubs lock up Rizzo through 2019 (UPDATE)

This is awesome news.  Per Ken Rosenthal, the Cubs have agreed to a long term extension with Anthony Rizzo to the tune of 7 years $41 million.  STEAL!  The Cubs now control Rizzo, Starlin Castro, and Jorge Soler for the better part of the next decade.  Much more shortly..

(UPDATE) A few sources confirm that this deal has two club options that could result in this deal going for nine years, and $68 million.  This is such huge news for the Cubs, they are paying Castro and Rizzo to be here for the next 7 years together for $101 million, that’s remarkable.  That should give the Cubs financial flexibility when they need to get get a free agent when they are contending, good news all around tonight.
