No, I thought ahead here. Since trading Schwarber from my fantasy team fixed him, and Lester is on my team, I'll just have to trade him, too.

Dear Duke,

Please feel free to write glowing articles about non-Cubs. Here is a non-exhaustive list of suggested subjects:

Max Scherzer
Clayton Kershaw (might as well just finish him off while he's down, amirite?)
Alex Wood
Justin Turner
Corey Seager

Thanks as always for all that you do for this community.

Update: Just released him from my fantasy team 30 minutes ago. He'll be good to go for the playoffs.
