If the Cubs were looking to add for 2015 and beyond, this is one route to go.
Chicago Cubs Rumors
There were trades around the league and Cubs rumors, but the losses to the Phillies overshadowed things.
The Dodgers have always felt like the most obvious landing spot.
The Cubs, Blue Jays, and Nationals are noted as the biggest pursuers right now. It might make the most sense for the Cubs to keep waiting, though.
Hamels was very, very good yesterday – but the fact that he threw a no-hitter isn’t going to change his market.
A guess is only a guess, but we know there’s been quite a bit of reported interest.
The Cubs reportedly signed Ryan Buchter to a minor league deal for left-handed organizational pitching depth.
Another arm to add to the Cubs rumor mix.
A team without obvious tradable pieces or an obvious inclination to sell. But, you know, they’ve been so bad …
Will the Cubs and Red Sox battle it out for Hamels? Do the Dodgers still make the most sense?
So much to get to after an already-crazy day. Cubs still in on Hamels, questions about Price, teams might scout Baez, and much more.
That’s two in a day, which is interesting, if nothing else.
The first major trade of Trade Season, and it’s the Astros getting a quality rental for a reasonable price.
The Mat Latos rumor offers one potential target, but are there more?
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.
