    Interesting trade. Why would the Cubs go after Keller? Why would the Royals want Schwarber?

    Thanks for asking. Schwarber will be switched to 1st Base and bat behind Soler. Schwarber is 26 yo.

    Cubs salaries are going up. Darvish, Bryant, Rizzo. Baez, etc Schwarber’s salary, though lower, is also going up. Cubs replace an Ofer (Schwarber) easier than former mentioned.

    I have suggested numerous trades for Schwarber. Probably the best player offed has been Bubic LHSP who is several years away from the majors.
    Keller is the Royals best starter, 23 yo. He is RH where the Cubs have a lot of LHed Starts. Keller is major league ready as a starter or reliever. He has been in Majors two yrs. Trade Values are higher than Schwarber’s. Ademon is just a filler. Numbers still lean Cubs way.
