This has been a really, really frustrating offseason.
After a season in which the Cubs were eliminated from the postseason after just one game, many fans expected the Cubs to do something to improve the team.
Two months in, and all the Cubs have done is add utility man Daniel Descalso to the mix.
Don’t get me wrong; the Descalso move is by no means a bad move. However it doesn’t exactly jumpstart a team from the first Wild Card to the World Series.
What is there for the Cubs to do? For starters, the bullpen needs work. One can argue that there aren’t many “sure things” in the Cubs bullpen.
Additionally, the Cubs could really use some financial relief. A couple of moves in past offseasons have come back to bite the Cubs in big ways as of late, and a little help in that department would be big for the Cubs.
While the Cubs haven’t been rumored to be involved in many talks whether it be trade or free agency. However, a deal can always be made. Here are three trades that the Cubs can make to kick off 2019 on a hot note.
