I’m only mentioning this because a) I’m bored and b) the people saying there is a trade happening have like 4-5k followers so it’s not just some random fake twitter account. Do what you want with the “info”
If he was claimed by the Cubs then the Nationals would immediately pull him back. We aren't getting someone that good, but I do know the Cubs are looking.
Seems like a fake rumor to me.
