Chicago Cubs’ Epstein will be tested

I believe this will be one of the toughest tests Epstein will face in his career. Is it time to move on and trade one of the core players while they still have value? Or do you give them one last shot and see if they can find some 2016 magic under new manager David Ross?

Of course, these possible transactions and new contracts all depend on what happens at the end of this shortened season, or possibly in the upcoming weeks.

The good news is only two players have Scott Boras as their agent–Bryant and Almora. The other good news is that we’ve seen the Cubs come out and play like it could be their last time together. There is an energy and buzz in the dugout every game, very reminiscent of the team in 2015-2016.

Next. The Cubs will have to get crafty at the deadline. dark

It’s been one heck of a ride with this core group, aside from giving the fans what they didn’t have for 108 years, they made baseball exciting to watch. If this 2020 season is their last dance, it doesn’t look like the Cubs will go out quietly.
