MLB Trade Rumors predicted that one top-50 Free Agent will pick the Cubs.
The Chicago Cubs are in a bit of a tailspin right now. They announced to the world on Tuesday that Theo Epstein is going to be out of the organization as of November 20th. He is the most important man to ever receive a paycheck from the Chicago Cubs as he helped turn them into a team that people respect. Now, it is going to be his long time running mate Jed Hoyer as the President of Baseball operations.
Some people believe that this means that the Cubs are going to rebuild. That would include trading away a bunch of its veteran core that helped deliver them a World Series in 2016. What if, however, Hoyer tries to keep this thing going. That might mean that instead of subtracting from the roster he tries to add to it.
