So many thanks for another fantastic Blogathon.
Chicago Cubs Rumors
Lots of activity there at the deadline besides the Cubs’ two moves.
The Cubs’ first move is for a rental, back-end arm.
A couple of serious pitcher rumors this morning.
It would be fun, but it’s gotta be so complicated to actually try and pull off.
Interesting, last-minute development.
The Red Sox might be in on both Carlos Carrasco and Tyson Ross, too. Plus much more.
That would be a sharp diversion from what we’ve been hearing for a long time. And it would really disrupt today.
The 24-year-old righty is having a down year and might be available.
It’s possible that something big is brewing with the Cubs and Padres. Whether it comes to fruition is another matter.
Leake may have been the best rental left on the market.
As far as Maddon knew at the time he made his comments yesterday, and as far as he knows right now, Castro is not being traded.
A handful of rumors that are floating around today.
It’s still hard to see the Cubs dumping Castro unless there’s actual value to be received.
