Rumors were flying all over the place the last thirty minutes, but the Cubs did not acquire Justin Verlander.
It was being said that the Justin Verlander requested a trade to the Cubs, but they could not pull the trigger. I honstley think it is a good thing that the Cubs did not acquire Verlander. The Cubs would have to put out up with his ridiculous contract, and I think that we have a very good pitching staff that can make it far in the postseason.
The Astros however did acquire Verlander. This could add some pitching depth for Houston as they make their World Series run.
