Chicago Cubs Rumors
Usually a huge day on the calendar is quite a bit less so for the Cubs. Here’s why.
Theo Epstein isn’t exactly itching to trade Kyle Schwarber. He’s also not necessarily in a rush to acquire a bullpen arm.
The Cubs need help, but where are they going to get it? Also, is Sean Doolittle’s shoulder soreness a concern?
If that’s the case, then the Cubs may simply have to move on as well.
The Yankees’ relievers aren’t the only ones out there for the Cubs.
Speaking of the bullpen …
The Cubs will not have to part with their best big-league-ready young talent just to improve in the bullpen, for example.
Would the Cubs add someone who could impact on the field, but also impact negatively in the clubhouse?
When guys struggle in high-leverage spots, it really sticks out in your mind.
The Cubs have highlighted their needs, but Theo Epstein says they are not in a rush to address them.
Cubs want *both* Chapman and Miller? That seems like a stretch. Also: Jose Reyes DFA’d, Ryan Braun and the Giants, Tyson Ross throwing, more.
