Yu Darvish might have more suitors than just the Cubs and the Milwaukee Brewers. Hours after it was reported that the Brewers made a contract offer to Darvish, one of the top free-agent starting pitchers on the market, a report from the Associated Press indicated that the Cubs are in “active talks” with the Japanese hurler.
