This was the likeliest outcome, but it still sucks.

The move would bring the Cubs’ lower level prospects much closer to Chicago.
If the deal is 7/$60, as reported, how does it compare to the extensions signed by other Super Two stars?
The fan who caught Josh Vitters’ first home run had a unique trade proposal. The Cubs have roster moves to make today, and the catchers are competing.
A team associated with the Cubs is making a late-season playoff push!
Butt = kicked.
It’s Beer o’clock.
The 25-year-old lefty has been pitching well at AAA.
As the clubhouse problems in Boston persist, it makes you wonder: how much of the mess is Theo’s fault? And does it make us a little nervous?
The 27-year-old righty is having quite a season, and enters arbitration for the first time in 2013. Is it time to lock him up, like Starlin Castro?
Brooks Raley goes down once again, but he’ll probably be back up sooner than you think. Chris Rusin might get a start, and Brett Jackson is aggressive.
There’s a new pitcher in the Cubs’ system, though he isn’t actually all that new.
The 29-year-old has good stuff, but a lot of wildness, too.
How very exciting for the Reds.
The Cubs will try to get out of Cincy with a split behind a guy who hasn’t won in over a year.
It’s almost certainly going to get done soon, but, technically, it isn’t done. Brett Jackson is feeling good, Alfonso Soriano is feeling proud, and Anthony Rizzo is feeling even.
You’re running out of time to see some of the Cubs’ minor league affiliates.
The Cubs split/tied yesterday’s doubleheader with the Reds.
The deal buys out three years of free agency, and comes with another option year on the end. Castro’s agent says the deal isn’t quite done.
