News broke just seconds ago that Justin Verlander has nixed a trade to the Astros, and he has now requested a trade to the Cubs. Justin Verlander stated that he only wants to go to the Cubs or Dodgers. I don’t want the Cubs to take on Verlander’s ridiculous contact, but it would be nice to have another good pitcher for the playoff run.
Update: Justin Verlander who reportedly nixed the Astros has now been traded to the Astros. Multiple reports stated that Verlander was not going to Houston, but the Astros made a trade within the last minute.
