Tuesday is the deadline for MLB teams to set their 40-man roster and the Cubs made some corresponding moves.
The 2012 Cubs could have had a representative on the AL-pennant-winning Tigers, as utilityman and lefty-masher Jeff Baker was dealt to Detroit at the trading deadline.
The Tigers gave Justin Verlander the ball on Wednesday night at AT&T Park. Who else would you rather have on the mound right now?
The Cubs continued their trend of buying low on former promising players, claiming right-handed pitcher Carlos Gutierrez off waivers from the Minnesota Twins.
