07:30 AM ET 07.01 | At some point, perhaps soon, Theo Epstein may begin another summer sell with the Cubs, who after an even 80 games were 10 games under .500. Epstein might deal a handful of players by the end of July, and the most coveted is starting pitcher Matt Garza, who would land the best prospects in return. Gregg and starting pitcher Scott Feldman also are drawing interest, though neither would bring back anywhere near the return of Garza. Teams are scouting the Cubs heavily and will continue to do so until the July 31 trade deadline. The Red Sox have sent their main scout, former Cubs assistant to the general manager Gary Hughes, to follow the team on the West Coast portion of the current nine-game trip.

I think the Cardinals need to trade for a top starter; but, this guy isn't it.

How can any team coveted a over paid less than a 500 career pitching record unless this is your agent who is making these comments.

How about they hang on to all of them? They likely won't get much for any of them

I got 2" of rain yesterday. I'm in Florida. Supposed to get a repeat today.

There's a reason the Cubs stink. They don't have any talent.

Same here. Been waiting for two dry days in a row so I can stain the deck finally. Every day is the same....hot, humid, with thunderstorms.

When was their last good year even? Around 1984 or so? They may have had a few good ones more recently but I haven't really paid attention to them to be honest.

They've had a decent season here and there but nothing sustained.
