It’s the middle of the summer and it’s that time of the year again where the rumors are already everywhere about the MLB Trade deadlines that will be taking place in less than 2 weeks.
Our staff has been hearing rumors, speculations and hearsay for the last couple of weeks as to who will be going where and one of the big questions around is whether the Chicago Cubs will be major trade deadline players?
The Chicago Cubs management is tight lipped like every other team out there but reading between the lines, some sports handicappers believe that manager Joe Maddon and executives Jed Hoyer and Theo Epstein are on the hone looking for a left-handed batter.
In addition, the Cubs could use some young blood in their rotation but one thing is for sure, they won’t be trading Kyle Schwarber according to several interviews.
The Minnesota Twins are cleaning house after a having their worst season yet with a 33-58 record for the 2016 MLB AL year. The first step they are doing is to fire the Twins General Manager, Terry Ryan. Rob Anthony, the assistant general manager will take over his duties on an interim basis.
According to the Twins' CEO and owner, Jim Pohlad, the decision to fire Terry was "difficult, painful and not obvious..."
