Ok, so you knew this was coming. Regardless of where the Cubs are at in the standings, this writer is a firm believer that the Cubs need an arm.
Nonetheless, Cubs’ pitching has been a major disappointment. If the team is out of it come the end of July then it’ll no doubt be the pitching that’ll do them in. Therefore all the more reason to load up for the foreseeable future.
The team could opt for a can’t-miss prospect over a player already in the majors, but really any long-term option will do. Luckily the team has plenty of players who will net high value in a trade to choose from. They could realistically get almost anybody they want–if they really wanted to.
