So typical Cubs to not allow the Sox even one day when they're the dominant story in Chicago. You know that's going to happen unless Kopech throws a no-hitter tonight.

That was definitely a lot of fun--let's hope the juice in his playoff bat is all drained.

Bryant's injury probably played a part but I'd guess it has as much to do with Russell being a black hole with the bat this year. They need all the firepower they can get, I'd be really nervous about having Cole Hamels as your playoff ace in the year 2018.

I can't forget that one of the great flops in Cubs history was named Danny Murphy, but this guy is an OK 2B and a professional hitter. A steal at the price they paid. It's more about Bryant than Russell, IMO. Credit to the hated Cubs FO.

I think Danny (above) was once a White Sox after his Cubs days.

Now its being reported that Darvish is out for the season with a "stress reaction in right elbow."

But Murphy doesn't get to bat against Cub pitching anymore. But I sure hope he isn't the answer to Bryant's extended DL stint.


Ah, another day, another run. Thank you, Detroit!

This reminds me of some of those 2006/2007 pickups the Sox made. You start trying to supplement the team with guys on perhaps the downhill side of their career, name still looks good, team is banged up, doesn’t quite fit the mold of what won it. Your table is ready, Darin Erstad and Mike MacDougal.

Murphy still has got it. He is a very dangerous hitter, really good pickup by the Cubs.

How do the Sox get a top 30 prospect from the Brewers for Soria, but the Nats get a complete nobody minor leaguer for Murphy? He is a middle of the order hitter, even on a contender. That PTBNL better be the cubs 1st round pick this year or something.

I can't wait for the Sox to be back in the hunt. Quality MLB rental players are being traded for literally nothing nowadays. Seems like most deals only cost prospects outside of team's top 30, just crazy. Teams out of the hunt appear to only care about salary relief on rentals.

The Nats really had no choice. It was either take the offer the Cubs made or get nothing. My question is why the stingy-ass Dodgers refused to capitalize on being awarded a waiver claim on Bryce Harper. Give up something better than the compensatory pick and make the damn move.

I would way rather get nothing and keep him. Just continue to play out the season with your team you started the year with as favorites. The Nats have a really good roster and the Phils/Braves are young and inexperienced for the most part.

Yeah i wonder what the Dodgers offered. They definitely had the pieces to make the Nats really consider it.

Did these moves get Washington under the luxury tax level? They saved about $4 million total by losing Murphy and Adams.

This is truth. However, I still take great pleasure in watching the Cubs Epic Fail all over themselves.
On to other flubbie news, Russell to the DL with Bustitis.(yes that was spelled correctly-figure out what I meant, you can do it)

As I've said, I don't harbor the ill feelings toward the Cubs that I used to many moons ago, but man, how awesome would it be if Milwaukee and St. Louis both somehow passed them?

The Brew Crew have 6 games with the Cubs and the Redbirds have 3 with the Flubs, the only way I see the Cubs losing the division is that they lose most of those games or have a 1969 type complete meltdown. BTW, I've had ill feeling towards the Cubs forever.

They're looking real good right now. It'd take a miracle. All the sweeter if it happens, true.

I was always a White Sox fan (thanks grandpa) but when I was a kid I liked them a lot. Especially Don Kessinger. What changed me most was the fan base.

I still believe the Cubs lack the pitching to win the league crown not to mention the WS.
