#WarmStove man, Charles the Cat, tweeted out that the Cubs and Mets have recently had frequent talk approaching the trade deadline. The Cat says no names have been mentioned.
What we can assume is that this is on a pitcher. The Cubs need a decent starter heading into the stretch while the Mets are willing to shop their biggest starters. If the Cubs are looking small towards someone like Wheeler, then the price shouldn’t be as high as someone like DeGrom. We know so far that the Cubs don’t seem to be looking for a big name starter, so DeGrom could be out of conversation.
