I'm pretty sure Starlin Castro has had "trade" in his head all year long.
He's like the first name you hear about when talking about who the Cubs could/would trade.
And that can't help him on the field, you know?
Yeah, that can't be helping at all.
And today, there's this at MLB Trade Rumors.
When the word "aggressively" is used in the same sentence as "move", it's even worse.
So today's the deadline, and we'll see what happens.
Yesterday was a travel day for me.
11:15 flight, but...
3 mini-delays as plane was a little early arriving, then they cleaned the plane and cooled the plane and finally we get on to find out there's a mechanical problem so it's actually over an hour.
It was just a long day.
When I get home, however, I turn on the tv to see that the Cubs are losing to the Brewers but they've got guys on, and then Anthony Rizzo hit such a gorgeous 3-run homer I forgot how crappy the rest of the day was.
He hit it and it was in the upper deck in the blink of an eye.
Really whacked it.
And then Strop and Rondon kept any Brewer excitement away as the Cubs got a couple insurance runs.
Cubs 5 Brewers 2.
There have been so many trades that I can't even comment.
Lets see if the Cubs can do something smart today.
