Cubs trade Anthony Rizzo to Yankees in blockbuster deal

Cover picture for the article

The Chicago Cubs have turned into sellers at the trade deadline. Amid their struggles, the Cubbies have traded veteran first basemen Anthony Rizzo to the New York Yankees. Rizzo is in the midst of a respectable campaign, hitting .248 with 14 homers in 92 games. With the Cubs 10.5 games behind the Milwaukee Brewers in the NL Central, it makes sense to get some assets in return for a player like Anthony Rizzo as the playoffs remain a long shot.

I never bought that a world series win meant the Cubs were finally getting serious about winning. It's also the reason I quit taking all sports seriously long ago. How can you root for a guy on your team, when he'll be on another team tomorrow. The fans pledge their loyalty, while guys like Rickets are laughing all the way to the bank.
