Thoughts on trade?

I'll give the Avila/Wilson trade a B. The Cubs definitely needed a trustworthy setup man to complement Davis, and Wilson can be just that. The Cubs now officially have no notable prospects, though (since Candelario and Jimenez have bean dealt). And Wilson and Avila will both be free agents after this season. Something to think about...

I like the aggressive moves though. There is no guarantee the Cubs will be in contention when these guys may be All-Stars. The time to win is now.

Yeah, I guess so. I just don't want to see Cubs management abandon the "building from within" approach that got them this far.

Wilson is with the Cubs in 2018 and might be the closer.
