Cubs fans emotional in reactions to Rizzo trade


Starting spreading the news. Anthony Rizzo is leaving today.

The Cubs traded Rizzo to the New York Yankees, the club officially announced Thursday night.

And as you may imagine, Cubs fans are emotional seeing Rizzo, a franchise cornerstone and the longest-tenured player on the roster, leave the club.

Many fans are thanking Rizzo for helping bring a World Series title to the North Side back in 2016.

For others, the thought of Rizzo in Yankees pinstripes makes them feel unwell.

If you're wondering what that looks like...

Others are already plotting for Rizzo to return as a free agent this winter.

Ohers are upset Rizzo didn't get an at-bat Thursday, so fans could give him a final ovation at Wrigley Field, in case of a trade. Rizzo and Bryant, another likely trade candidate, sat out of Thursday's loss to the Reds.
