FanPost Friday: Construct the ideal Cubs trade

Because everyone loves to play GM! Everyone loves a winner. It’s an exciting time to be a fan when you see your team doing well, but maybe not as well as you’d hoped. The Cubs have struggled this season, fighting alongside a strong contingent of teams in the NL Central. While many had suspected they’d run away with the division again, the Cubs have had to contend with the Brewers and Cardinals breathing down their necks, and as of this writing they’re only one game back in the Central. One game. A game that a player with a 1.3 WAR (and a history of much better) might help them make...

Boone Logan designated for assignment

The Brewers cut ties with the bust of a free agent LOOGY signing You could tell Boone Logan was on thin ice based on Craig Counsell’s comments after his past couple outings. Logan was signed as a free agent to get left-handed batters out. He couldn’t do that — albeit in a small sample size — and the Brewers decided they couldn’t wait around for him to figure it out. With a roster move needed to get Freddy Peralta on the 25-man to make tonight’s start in Pittsburgh, the team decided to cut bait on the failed free agent experiment.

Milwaukee Brewers listed as possible match for a Jacob deGrom trade

He’s a legitimate ace, but will come at a high price. After a hot start to the season, the New York Mets have fallen out of contention over the last several weeks.
