Chicago Cubs News

No trade just yet, and the Cubs have to go the option route to get Rusin on the roster.
The Cubs are presumably waiting to see if another – eh hem – roster move obviates the need to make space for Rusin.
Score the winning run, get the pitching win. No big deal, right? Actually, it’s pretty cool.
No option to AAA Iowa. The injury is not believed to be serious.
That means the Cubs are chipping in about $300,000. Enough to buy a meaningful prospect?
What typically happens to teams after five years of lots of losing? Good stuff, actually. Does that save the five years of losing, though?

The Cubs’ top setup arm will get a little respite at AAA.
It’ll now be a little harder to be voted in. Also: Rizzo and Castro leading, Olt trying, Sweeney lucking, games slowing, and more.
No word yet on a compromise with the rooftops following the seven-sign approval.
37 hours straight is tough enough. Doing it all in this hat? Well … thanks for giving to Make-A-Wish.
