Pirates Vs. Cubs: Trade Deadline Will Finally Pass, Cubs Will Continue To Play

The Chicago Cubs front office is busy trying to work out trades with veteran pitchers Matt Garza and Ryan Dempster, but the players still have to worry about the games on the schedule. On Tuesday, the Cubs take on the Pittsburgh Pirates after claiming game one of the series on Monday night.

Ryan Dempster is scheduled to start for Chicago, but that could all change very quickly if a deal is consummated before the non-waiver deadline passes. The Pirates will turn to A.J. Burnett, who has posted an impressive 12-3 record and 3.52 ERA over 115.0 innings in 2012.

Game Date & Time: Tuesday, July 31, 7:05 p.m. CT

TV: WGN
