The Chicago Cubs were wheeling and dealing at the MLB Trade Deadline. In one of their bigger moves, they sent superstar shortstop Javy Baez to the New York Mets.
Kris Bryant was another huge name the Cubs sent away. They traded him to the San Francisco Giants right as the deadline was coming to an end. According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, it was the Mets who almost pulled off a massive blockbuster with the Cubs that also included Bryant.
Then there were the Mets, who discussed a blockbuster with the Cubs, but grew less inclined to complete the trade because of the uncertainty surrounding the physical condition of their ace right-hander, Jacob deGrom.
