The Yu Darvish trade is done, as Oleg covered here. And while the Cubs’ return includes Zach Davies, who was actually pretty decent in 2020, and completes the Cubs’ Three Milhouses achievement, the true effect of the trade won’t be felt for years.

From a purely statistics perspective, […]
While the season ended sooner than we would have liked, it did indeed end. So now there’s nothing left but to hand out report cards for the players of each team.
