As much as I like him as a person, I think they need to trade Schwarber. He lost much of his value to the Cubs because of his inability to play catcher. Which I don't blame him. He just had major knee surgery. He is a stereotypical DH and he, along with some other prospects, could get us someone like Sonny Gray. The Cubs starting pitchers have been getting killed in the first couple of innings. If we could strengthen the rotation it would take some pressure off of the offense. It's hard to stay in a game mentally when you're looking at a 4-0 deficit in the 2nd inning game after game. Simply getting rid of Schwarber would improve their run defense and free up room for Happ, Almora and Jay (who has been one of their best hitters in limited appearances).
