Update: The Cubs send Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to the Athletics for Addison Russell, per sources. There may be other players and teams also involved.

Wow. Just wow. Despite the long-term potential for Russell, this is a win-now move for the A's who have now crushed it with regard to their pitching staff. Even with Sonny Gray possibly having his innings capped, the A's have three bona fide starters to work with heading into the playoffs. Interesting move for the Cubs who are now ridiculously loaded int he middle infield with Russell, Starlin Castro and Javier Baez. Initial thought is that they could turn themselves into immediate candidates for the David Price sweepstakes which, heading into next year, would certainly be an upgrade for their pitching staff. In truth, there are so many possibilities here, it's almost scary.
