Report: Cubs, Phillies have discussed Kris Bryant trade

One of the biggest storylines surrounding the Chicago Cubs this offseason is their core players and if they decide to trade one or not. Two names that have become hot in the rumor mill are Willson Contreras and Kris Bryant.

Both are considered core players but the Cubs could look to deal one or possibly both this offseason. As the Winter Meetings get set to being in San Diego, one of those names was mentioned in a report.

    Both of these players have had their ups and downs over the past few seasons, including injuries. But more important in today’s professional sports world is the constant pressure to be a prime contender for a shot at championships and world and national titles. The business side of pro sports takes precedence over a player’s past performance, personality and fan appreciation. And, don’t forget the road to riches goes in both management and players’ pockets, business is business, and no tears should be shed over trades and free agencies moving forward. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
