Forgive a short one as I peck on my barely-functioning phone from the bleachers (turns out obsessive Twitter scrolling and boiling heat combine to make your phone go into shock). But your update on Anthony Rizzo, who is resting today, is that the talks with the Red Sox haven’t stopped yet.

If the Sox are the only realistic destination at this point – and I would buy that – then there’s no urgency to get a deal done immediately, other than logistical man power. The Sox probably know where the Cubs stand and vice versa, so they will circle back around at some point I reckon.
But clearly they’re staying in touch.
