Those who've known Bears GM Ryan Pace since his youth are not surprised about the blockbuster trade he pulled off Thursday night, parting with three draft picks just to move up one first-round spot to choose North Carolina QB Mitch Trubisky.
"It's a fire sale. Everything must go," said Epstein, while on a phone call with another team's GM. "Rizzo for three 17-year-old prospects? Done! Bryant for a No. 5 starter and a cooler mascot than ours? Send me the paperwork!"
"It was great having Woody back tonight," said manager Joe Maddon. "So great in fact that we're not letting him go back to Kansas City. We need him here."
