WHAT CUBS MOVE WOULD YOU MAKE?
So. Pretend the All-Star break is nigh upon us. The Cubs are up 5 games on the Cardinals and Brewers. Assuming no major injuries and the club continues to play like it is now, what “piece” do you go out and try to acquire before the trade deadline?
As DHaab asked in the comments, how much longer can Ryan Dempster keep this up? Lilly has been better of late, but likely had his career year in 2007. Slots 4 & 5 are questionable at best right now. Don’t you have to go out and get another starting pitcher if you are Jim Hendry? And who would you try to obtain?
Or perhaps you have another position in mind that you think is more of a necessity. Like the bullpen.
