According to Ted Berg of USA Today, the Cubs could and should pull off a trade for Mike Trout this winter. He pointed out that Chicago has the assets to make it happen while also retaining potency on their lineup.
“The Cubs, for their incredible depth, can somehow put together an incredible package of potential superstars, capable big leaguers, and prospects without tearing apart the bulk of the lineup that just won 103 games and the World Series,” Berg opined.
Berg also suggested a possible Cubs trade package for Trout that include seven players from the major and minor leagues. These players are Kyle Schwarber, Javier Baez, Albert Almora, Miguel Montero, Jeimer Candelario, Mark Zagunis and Ian Happ.
