The waiver trade deadline, 1 p.m. EST, has come and gone. Remaining
Chicago Cubs are pitchers Rich Harden and Aaron Heilman – the subjects
of increased trade chatter after their public waiver claims – as well
as all other Cubs.

It seems the Chicago Cubs like their chances to pull off an improbable
comeback in the N.L. Wild Card race, where the team trails the
Colorado Rockies by 5.5 games. Stranger things have happened, I
suppose, but leapfrogging four teams in one month is an incredibly
tall task.

    It’s absolutely mind-boggling how many mouth-breathing Cardinals fans decide to spend their time on this site.
