Interesting that the Cubbies go after a 1B to start their rebuild, Epstein and Hoyer believe Rizzo has the bat to build around, even as a first baseman, which should keep him healthy and in the lineup when they are ready to compete. The Pirates seem to have started at the other end of the diamond with Pedro, though I guess both teams have their stars, Cutch and Castro. Sounds like a very familiar scenario as we can count one more team in the rebuild mode. Would still like the Bucs to talk to the Padres on one of their other extra 1B.
