Snap. That’s been the belief for a while, and, despite the Cardinals’ recent meeting, it still sounds like it’s the case.
Hector Rondon was very good for the Cubs, and sticks out in a couple big memories.
After such a huge 2016 season, Diaz fell completely off the table this year.
The Cubs make the tough decision on Rondon.
Well, maybe they’re still in this thing. Or maybe it’s an opportunity for Stanton to say nah.
And away we gooooooooooooo.
The Cubs will get some cash out of the deal, and Carasiti will get paaaaid.
The Cardinals seem very committed to getting a big bat, but Longoria was way down in 2017.
Huh. For a top offense, the Cubs didn’t have a lot of hard contact.
It’s a deadline day, with big decisions on tap all around the league.
This could be their opportunity to pitch to him to accept a trade.
The 28-year-old lefty was a big-time relief prospect for a while, but hasn’t put it together in the big leagues.
Now we can evaluate the trade in whole. And. Um.
Each day makes it seems slightly more likely that this will actually happen.
Boxberger was good in 2017 when healthy, and the Diamondbacks gave up a solid prospect to get him.
Fifth starter candidates aren’t sexy, but, well, you gotta consider them. There are things to like about Fiers in that role.
What would happen on the Cubs if two stars got into a very physical fight? How would you want to see it resolved from a roster perspective?
It was never a sure thing that they’d seriously allow it, but it seems like it’s the price of admission at this point. And boy would it be fun …
If that’s true, it’s time for the Marlins to push Stanton to accept a deal.
