MLB Rumors: Chicago Cubs Have Had Extension Talks With Superstar Starting Pitcher

The Chicago Cubs are off to a solid start this season and find themselves right in the battle for the National League Central, and with a group of solid veterans and young players, they could be playoff contenders for a few years now.

One key for that has been the consistency at the top of the rotation with veteran Marcus Stroman, and it's now been revealed that earlier in the spring, the two sides began discussing an extension that could keep Stroman a Cub for the remainder of his career.

Speaking on the potential extension, Stroman has gone on record saying he would love to be a Cub for the rest of his career, and at this point, it appears that all signs are pointing in the direction of this happening some point in the near future.
