When you have a stretch like this, get blown out 11-2 yesterday, where position players pitched 3 innings, you're more than one arm and/or big bat away from running down the Cubs. Do you sell the farm for a shot at a 1 game playoff? Thinking not.
Andrew McCutchen is apparently being shopped by the Giants. Perhaps the Brewer's GM is not bothered by the irony. Stranger things have happened; ex-Pirate Aramis Ramirez was once traded away by the Buccos to another in-division rival only to end up coming back to retire as a Pirate.

Speaking of the Pirates and the trade deadline, it looks like they acquired a new closer from the Rangers but might otherwise be standing pat even though they're 4 games out of the second wild card. I hate to say it, but they don't need another outfielder so Cutch might indeed end up someplace else now that the Giants are pretty much out of it.
