Now we move to the MLB Trade Deadline and the one position player that might be on his way out is SS Starlin Castro. He has some suitors but there is no doubt Cubs President Theo Epstein and his Crew needs to make a move and get one more arm. That Cole Hamels or David Price coming to the North Side looks like a no go with Teams like the Yankees and Dodgers in the mix paying for everything and anything under the sun and outbidding all potential suitors 24-7-365.
Can the North Siders still stay the course and get to the Post Season...you bet! Will they go deep with a 1-2-3 of Jon Lester, Jake Arrieta, and a big question mark as who would be the 3rd arm and that's going on a three-man rotation? Question and more questions as the Cubbies are 11.5 games back of the Redbirds for the NL Central. Being more realistic they are 2.5 games back of the Gigantes for the #2 slot in the Wild Card.
Bad news is the Pirates are fighting for the NL Central but looks like a surefire #1 seed in the Wild Card. If somehow someway the Gigantes can pick up Cole Hamels to go with the "Mad Bum"#OrangeOctober will run right for the NL West title as they are just a 1/2 game back of the Dodgers.
