Team First: Pete-Crow Armstrong wants Cubs to re-sign Cody Bellinger

by - Senior Editor -

The Cubs fanbase has been patiently waiting for the ballclub to re-sign standout hitter Cody Bellinger to a long-term deal this offseason.

However, super agent Scott Boras represents him, so negotiations have been very slow and tedious.

Despite the potential impact on his own playing time, Cubs prospect Pete Crow-Armstrong expresses a hopeful desire for a reunion with Bellinger, emphasizing his commitment to the team's success above himself.

"I'm here to win," Crow-Armstrong said. "And if Cody Bellinger is going to do that and help us make that happen, then he should be here. That's how I feel. It doesn't affect what I do."

'PCA' sounds like a great teammate with his selfless talk. If Bellinger re-joined the Cubs, it's possible that PCA would return back to the minors as he has only 34 MLB games of experience.

In the 2023 season, Bellinger showcased MVP-caliber performance, boasting impressive stats, including a .307 batting average, 26 home runs, 97 RBIs, and an impressive .881 OPS.
