The Chicago Cubs made a splash in a 24-hour span, buying and selling away three of its star gamers from its 2016 World Collection championship workforce.

On Thursday, the Cubs traded Rizzo to the New York Yankees.
Rizzo, who spent 10 years with the Cubs, batted .248 with 14 dwelling runs and 40 RBIs this season.
On Friday, the Mets acquired two-time All-Star Báez, and the San Francisco Giants bought Bryant.

Bryant, this season is hitting .267 with 18 dwelling runs and 51 RBIs.
However not all hope is misplaced for the Cubs, since Báez, Rizzo, and Bryant are all free brokers on the finish of this season. So there’s a slight likelihood the trio might make their method again to Chicago.
