Anthony Rizzo did it. Javy Báez did it. So of course Kris Bryant did it, too.
Rafael Ortega tried everything he could.
This guy is out of his mind right now!!!
Bryant grew up a Giants fan, and appreciated being traded there.
A deeper dive on the four deadline-day prospects acquired by the Cubs, including where they might slot into the Cubs’ system rankings.
The Cubs catcher is the new leader of the team, but he gets the day off today.
If Willson Contreras becomes the leader of this team, I’m good with that. But then will the Cubs just trade him after the season?
The Cubs shook of the despair of yesterday and won tonight’s game against the Nationals. See? Everything is just fine.
I wish him nothing but the best.
“We did everything we could over the last week to try to reset this organization and to try to make the best decisions possible.”
The Cubs not only sent out 9 players this trade season, they brought back 12 new players. I just needed to discuss them all to catch up.
The “I’m not crying, you’re crying” post.
Javy’s Love, Rizzo’s Gloves, Two Reliever Debuts, La Russa Runs, Why Pitchers Stay, and Other Cubs Bullets
Javy Báez loves the fans, Anthony Rizzo loves Chicago, David Ross loves them all, and I loved Manny Rodriguez’s debut last night.
The Zombie Cubs are now 0-1.
This year’s Trade Deadline presented unique challenges for us as Cubs fans, but there is real goodness here.
In a tie game, late, Anthony Rizzo broke the tie for his new team.
An important day for the Cubs organization. Obviously.
I can honestly say I’ve never written a headline quite like that.
There were some trades today, so … the infield looks a little different.
Feel like your head is spinning? Part of that’s just because of how absurdly BUSY this all was.
Cubs at Nationals … well, what’s left of them, anyway.
The Cubs actually got a really interesting lotto ticket for Marisnick.
This is wrong. How DARE the Nationals do this to US?
Chicago Cubs Acquire OF Prospect Alexander Canario and RHP Prospect Caleb Killian from Giants for Kris Bryant
A couple solid prospects for Bryant. A perfectly fair return. Not a wow return.
The last of the three-man positional core to be traded at this deadline. It is complete.
Chicago Cubs Reportedly Acquire Mets OF Prospect Pete Crow-Armstrong for Javy Báez and Trevor Williams
The Cubs are taking a chance on a 2020 first rounder who just had shoulder surgery. It’s actually a really good risk.
This is a lot to process.
It’s a very surprising trade return from a very surprising trade destination.
As first reported by our own Michael Cerami.
If the trades are gonna happen, why not make them ABSOLUTELY CRAZY?
A whole lotta reporting rolling out on the Bryant, Báez, and Kimbrel markets. If you’re not on Twitter following obsessively, catch up here.
Two big updates on the Kimbrel market.
That would be a huge farm system to get involved.
