The Mat Latos rumor offers one potential target, but are there more?
Chicago Cubs Rumors
Yet another arm for which the Cubs could make a trade. Gotta love trade season.
It’s an exciting rumor, to be sure, but I’ve got a lot of thoughts that might tamp down expectations.
Will the Cubs be going after a big-time starter after all?
The White Sox really only have one trade piece that is a realistic fit for the Cubs.
There was a time when a match seemed very possible. Now? Much less so.
It’s good to see Hammel back, but he’s still battling a leg issue. The back of the Cubs’ rotation is also still a question.
The question of whether the Tigers will sell is a pretty big one, with impact all over the market.
Every non-Cub NL Central team is eligible to receive an extra, tradable pick tomorrow. Let’s discuss.
A team loaded with tradable assets, the Padres are among the more intriguing possible trade partners for the Cubs.
Vogelbach might not be ready to return to AA until early August, which would have certain implications for the Cubs.
The implications for the market – and, by extension, the Cubs – are really significant.
Well, I’d say the rumor mill is finally really picking up. So much to get into. The Cubs and Ben Zobrist … and Cole Hamels … and Ian Kennedy … let’s discuss.
Theo Epstein has a long, decorated history as a buyer as the trade deadline nears. The Cubs should be buyers in the coming days, so a look-back is interesting.
Kyle Schwarber arrived, the rumor mill turned, the Cubs won some games, and Edwin Jackson departed.
The Cubs will have 10 days to trade, waive, or release Jackson.
Has the situation changed? Does Hamels make any more sense for the Cubs now than he did a few months ago?
It’s easy to say that the pitching hasn’t been the Cubs’ problem and there won’t be enough arms available anyway. But that’s not exactly true, and it misses the point.
A one-stop shop for the Cubs? Well, you could certainly argue there are a ton of fits here for the Cubs.
