There have been more than a few times when Cubs manager Rick Renteria was asked if he'd consider batting Travis Wood somewhere higher than ninth because of the pitcher's ability to hit.

Former Cubs All-Star pitcher and 1984 National League Cy Young Award winner Rick Sutcliffe remembers watching Greg Maddux pitch when he first joined Chicago in 1986.
When it comes to the Braves' Hall of Fame era, don't even attempt roll call unless you have some time on your hands. Yes, there was only one World Series title. Even Bobby Cox, Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux would stipulate to that. But the volume of excellence, and the constantly changing cast of characters behind that excellence, is staggering.
There will be plenty more wheeling and dealing before the clock strikes 4 p.m. ET on Thursday. The five contenders best positioned from a talent standpoint to make a significant trade are the Pirates, Dodgers, Cardinals, Mariners and Royals
