07:12 AM ET 06.25 | What seemed headed for a nasty divorce for some time now may soon settle at its endgame. Third baseman Ian Stewart and the Cubs are on the verge of working out an arrangement for Stewart to leave the organization, two weeks after he expressed frustration with his situation via a couple revealing tweets, people familiar with the situation said. The resolution allowing him to move to another organization is expected to come within a couple days. It isn't known what, if any, financial concessions are being made, but Stewart's contract is guaranteed so he has no obligation or even impetus to give back money to the team, beyond his desire to move on. Stewart's contract with the Cubs is worth $2 million, so he has about $1 million left on it.

What does it matter? The guy can't even compete in the minors at this point.

He's not the only one on the way out. The Cubs are currently taking offers for half of their players

Maybe he can get it done down in the Mexican League :-)

There's not going to be a line of teams asking for this guy.
