The waiver deadline has gone the way of the rotary dial phone, and now the Chicago Cubs have just one chance to add to their team for the stretch run. Several of the names we’ve seen have been members of the San Francisco Giants bullpen. Is it possible they could link up for a trade or two? It is possible, but I can guarantee that Madison Bumgarner is not in the conversation for the Cubs. However, Tony Watson and Will Smith could and should be.
We’ve delved into both of these bullpen arms over time, and we seem to keep coming back to them.
