This was supposed to be the easy part of the Cubs' schedule.
For the Cubs, their biggest addition before MLB's July 31 non-waiver trade deadline may already have happened.

The first rule of a no-hitter is you don't talk about the no-hitter.
The only thing that could have stopped Cole Hamels on Saturday would have been a mid-game trade to the Cubs.
