Cubs, Nationals pick up pieces after wild trade deadline

The Chicago Cubs and the Washington Nationals, two of baseball's biggest sellers at the trade deadline, will continue their new path forward when they play the second of their three-game series on Saturday.

The Nationals, World Series champions in 2019, dealt eight veterans Thursday and Friday including ace Max Scherzer, All-Star shortstop Trea Turner and Daniel Hudson -- who recorded the final out of the World Series -- as they committed to their first rebuild in more than a decade.

"These aren't just assets that you acquire. These are human beings that I have great affinity for," Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said Friday. "It's been a tough couple of days. And yesterday was probably as tough a day as I've had as a general manager."
