REPORT: Cubs Trading Anthony Rizzo to the Yankees

Chicago Cubs

I did not see this coming. I didn’t expect Anthony Rizzo to get moved at all, and if he did get moved, I figured it would be to the Red Sox, who desperately need him and who drafted him all those years ago.

But that’s not the report, and I am jarred:

Instant update, because it’s happening:

The Yankees clearly would want to keep Rizzo away from the Red Sox, and are also clearly really pushing in to try to make a competitive run after the Deadline.

I’ll have the emotional reaction when there’s time and space for that. For now, I’m just tracking this stuff. We’ll see the return when it comes out. I can’t believe this.
