This wouldn’t be an obvious move, but it could be sneaky-good.

Keeping you posted on the latest, which is that things are still very quiet overall.
The Cubs Are Reportedly “Intent On Getting a Leadoff Guy” – Names Mentioned: Dyson, Peralta, Inciarte(?)
It’s not hard to surmise the Cubs could really use a leadoff guy – and they want one.
There’s a lot to like about this guy few have really discussed.
Lukewarm Stove: Cubs’ Interest in Baltimore Bats, Bauer’s Market, Giles, Diaz, Cardinal Upgrades, More
A trio of Orioles have entered the Cubs rumor world.
Would be a really nice bench piece to add, but it seems like the Orioles might just be fishing.
They say it’s precautionary. But don’t you worry anyway?
I can come up with explanations, but it’s still a surprise.
Could things be happening?
Addison Russell Scratched from Iowa’s Lineup, But Early Indications Won’t Get You Excited (UPDATE: He Has No Equipment)
It’s probably not a trade situation right now.
I’m thinking not very.
The contract, the shoulder, the results, the platoon splits … you name it, and there are red flags all over.
Is everyone just gonna explode on the 30th and 31st?
Lots to discuss about lots of bats, but ultimately not a lot that realistically moves the needle for the Cubs.

Plenty of fits out there in trade, theoretically, and yet things are quite slow.

So much to get into, as you’d expect this time of year from the Cubs’ GM.
I’m not sure it would work even if Bryant were seriously injured.
If you want to start the trading now, we’re ready.
A lot is up in the air, but it’s possible Russell does not return.
Still no walks this month for Javy Baez. Also, a contributing factor in Ian Happ being at Iowa.
One local beat writer doesn’t think the return for Castellanos is going to be significant.
They’ve been known to double down on deals in the past!
I’m not sure I see a Cubs target here, but I do see potential good news for the Cubs.
There’s so much to run down on Castellanos. We’re obsessed with the rumor at this point.
