The Chicago Cubs might be forced to trade some of their highly paid players when the rosters unfreeze ahead of the 2020 season.
The Chicago Cubs are in a bad spot right now. They still might have the best roster (at least in terms of top tier talent) in the National League Central Division but that might not last very long. Some smart and informed people have started to use the phrase “Farewell Tour” to describe the 2020 season for the Chicago Cubs. It might be the last time some of these guys are together if the team does in fact start to shed some salary.
