Willson Contreras is ready for the trade deadline to be over and find his new home
In a post-game interview, catcher Willson Contreras was asked a series of questions about the trade deadline. He was adamant that he was ready for it all to be over as this was a new thing for him to experience.
Contreras was asked if he felt the stress of the deadline was catching up to him on the field, Contreras said,
“No, it is just hard anytime that you have a little bit of time off, my mind is going right to the trade rumors. It’s not easy and my coach knows about it.”
Willson Contreras is ready for this all to be over whether he is a Cub or not as he said,
“This is the first time I have been put into this position.” For a player that has played his whole career in Chicago, if he is to be traded will be hard for the player as this is all he has known when it comes to the MLB.
