Cubs Acquire Anthony Rizzo

The Cubs today acquired first basemen Anthony Rizzo and RHP Zach Cates from the Padres today for RHP Andrew Cashner and OF Kyung-Min Na.

Rizzo, originally Red Sox property under Theo Epstein was part of the deal that brought Adrian Gonzalez to Boston.

Now that Epstein and protege Jed Hoyer lead the Cubs, they have begun to leave their imprint on the team.

The Rizzo acquisition effectively ends the Carlos Pena era in Chicago.

The McAuliffe Report wants to know what our readers think of the move and the moves the Cubs have made thus far.

Please leave your comments here or on Facebook and twitter and well have a blog post responding to them later.
