As we all learned on Friday the Chicago Cubs were thinking about trading Kris Bryant.

Turns out that is NOT the case. So us Cubs fans can all breath a sigh of relief.

Per Theo Epstein, the Cubs will not be trading Kris Bryant.

Epstein won't use the word "untouchable", but guys like Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Javy Baez, and Willson Contreras aren't going anywhere anytime soon.

Why doesn't Epstein use the word untouchable?

Because if some other teams were to make a ridiculously good package offer that may include someone like Bryant, the Cubs would be stupid not to consider it.

But as of right now Bryant is staying in Cubbie blue!
