Anthony Rizzo has been traded from the Cubs to the Yankees? I know the Cubs have been talking about the need for a shake up lately but dayamn!
I figured Kris Bryant would be traded. That’s been the talk for a couple years now.
But Rizzo? He’s the heart and soul of the Cubs. He’s the good guy. The captain who would go down with his sinking ship. The smile that bolsters anything. The cancer-defeating, curse-crushing, foundation-leading hero. I do not use that word lightly.
He’s not a Yankee!
He’s a Cub, dammit.
Sure, 20-years-ago me would’ve been ecstatic. Not the now me, though. I’m a Chicago guy through and through.
But this? Soul crushing.
