Theo Epstein explains Cubs’ trade deadline strategy

first_img“There’s a lot of conversation, but prices are normally high at this point in the month,” Epstein said. “They get a little bit more realistic later. That’s kind of the mode everyone’s in right now.”The Cubs made a minor move earlier this week when they acquired backup catcher Martin Maldonado from the Royals in exchange for Mike Montgomery. They then placed Willson Contreras on the IL, although his injury is not considered serious. The Cubs are looking for ways to improve their roster before the July 31 trade deadline. But, they might not be willing to move their top prospects to make a major upgrade, president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said this week.“We’re not at July 31 yet,” Epstein told The Athletic. “But I think we have multiple priorities this year. We want to win now, but we also want to rebuild the system, so it would take a special deal to sacrifice the very top of the farm system. Willson Contreras injury update: Cubs catcher placed on IL as ‘precautionary’ move “The more good players you have playing well, the better you’re playing as a team, the more you can kind of focus on certain specific needs,” Epstein said. “That’s certainly what we’re doing. We’re always trying to look for any area to upgrade that’s realistic while keeping the bigger picture in mind, too.”The Cubs entered play Thursday in first place of the National League Central with a 51-44 record. They lead the Brewers and Cardinals by 2 1/2 games. “We feel really good about those guys. But I also think we have burgeoning depth in a lot of areas and some interesting upper-level guys and really high-ceiling lower-level guys, so I feel like it’s overall been a pretty good year for the system if you sort of look in the right places.”Chicago wants to add a leadoff hitter and a reliever, according to an earlier report from 670 The Score. Ben Zobrist, who typically occupied the top spot in the Cubs’ lineup in previous seasons, has been on the restricted list since early May.

GOP Says Renomination of Trump to Be Held in Private

first_imgThe GOP has announced a change in this year’s nomination process.The vote to re-nominate President Trump will be conducted in private later this month, and without any members of the news media present.A spokeswoman for the Republican National Convention cites the coronavirus pandemic for restricting press coverage from the Aug. 24 vote in Charlotte, North Carolina.“Given the health restrictions and limitations in place within the state of North Carolina, we are planning for the Charlotte activities to be closed press Friday, August 21 — Monday, August 24,” the RNC convention spokesperson said in a statement Saturday.“We are happy to let you know if this changes, but we are working within the parameters set before us by state and local guidelines regarding the number of people who can attend events,” the spokesperson added.The pandemic has prompted numerous changes to the nominating process. Last month, the president cancelled convention activities that were set to take place in Jacksonville, Florida.Formal proceedings of the Republican National Convention, including the vote to formally nominate Trump as the 2020 GOP nominee, are still expected to take place in Charlotte.The proceedings on the Monday of the convention, including the re-nomination vote, will be live-streamed.Space restrictions mean that not all delegates will attend either. Instead, 336 delegates will there, or one for every six delegates.Associated Press reporter Zeke Miller, the president of the White House Correspondents’ Association, has called the decision to close convention activities to the press an “an ill-advised decision” and is asking the GOP to “reconsider.” He tweeted: Nominating conventions are typically major media events, as political parties try to gain coverage of the events to spread their message to as many voters as possible.If the GOP’s decision stands, it will mark the first time in modern history that a party nominating convention would be closed to reporters.last_img read more
