I'm not going to sugarcoat it: this is very bad. Schwarber was one of the best young power hitters in the game and had a flair for the dramatic come October.
But the Cubs have depth. And they have the minor league resources to make a deal, even a big one, some time this year if needed.
The Cubs still have Rizzo. And Bryant. And Heyward. And Zobrist. And Fowler and Soler. They scored 14 runs last night without Schwarber.
But this is bad. Feel free to panic this weekend. Drink a lot. Get it all out now and come back on Monday focused on how goddamn good we still are.
