The Cubs can’t keep giving away games like this.
More than three-and-a-half hours before first pitch, Starlin Castro held a bat in his right hand, swinging with one arm at the balls Cubs hitting coach John Mallee threw underhand.
With one swing, Kris Bryant changed the entire mood around Wrigley Field, Cubs fans jumping up and down in the bleachers late Monday night.
With the nonwavier trade deadline on Friday, expect plenty of movement from the teams fighting to be at or near the top of the American and National Leagues.
For the Cubs, their biggest addition before MLB's July 31 non-waiver trade deadline may already have happened.
