Chicago Cubs: What is a realistic chaos?
No, the Cubs should not trade Bryant. I have been hammering this home for goodness knows how long. Regarding the likelihood of what the Cubs shouldn’t do and what the Cubs will do is a completely different story.
As Epstein leads the charge, it absolutely has to start with Pache. If not Pache then Waters. One of the two will need to be involved in a package deal. Of the two between Anderson and Wright, I prefer Wright. Don’t get me wrong I like Anderson’s makeup, I just believe Wright has the higher upside.
Lastly, if it is not Langeliers who is available it would give the Cubs ample time to check in on William Contreras, the younger brother of ‘Willy’. Bryse Wilson is also a name to watch for in any rumor mills. He performed well at Gwinnett this year and carries great command. Finally, of the pitching prospects I like the most in Atlanta’s farm it may be Kyle Muller. Muller has been as consistent as they come and should be close to a date with the Show.
Understandably, the Braves will probably be stingy in their package if these rumors gain any semblance of traction. It would be interesting to see an actual trade offer come to the table in order to see where Anthopoulos’ head is at regarding this charade.
No matter what happens it comes down to a simple motto: In Theo We Trust.
