Former Cubs Talk About Staying

So everything went down pretty much like most of us thought it would and the Cubs have agreed to exclusive negotiating rights with Mesa under a nonbinding agreement to build a new state of the art spring training complex. This is only the first step or as the East Valley Tribune equates Mesa has "merely gotten to first base". I'm confident that all the hurdles will be cleared and look forward to a sunny future in Mesa at the Cubs new Wrigleyville West complex.

So what do some former Cubs think about staying in Mesa, this article gives insight from Hall of Famer Fergie Jenkins, Ron Santo, Lee Smith, Big Daddy, and more. Without talking to Hall of Famers Ryne Sandberg and Billy Williams, I would guess they echo the positive sentiments on staying in Arizona as both have homes here.

Pitchers and Catchers...won't be long!
