  • Nationals Trade Daniel Murphy To Cubs

    Theo Epstein strikes again acquiring Nationals' Daniel Murphy

    The Cubs decided they'd had enough of trying to beat Nationals slugger Daniel Murphy and instead decided to just add him to the roster, acquiring the 33-year-old second baseman from the Nationals.

    Murphy, who's been limited to just 56 games with the Nationals due to a right knee injury, is having another solid season for Washington slashing .300/.341/.442. The power hasn't quite returned yet with only 6 home runs, but Murphy has a history of mashing baseballs in Chicago - the memory of his historic 2015 postseason run still haunts Cubs fans today.

    In return, the Cubs gave up single-A infielder Andrew Monasterio and a player to be named or cash considerations.
