Cubs president Theo Epstein said there’s a 50-50 chance the team will make a deal in the next two weeks before the All-Star break.

“Judging by the amount of calls that are going on, and the number of pieces we intend to have available and the number of opportunities that might present themselves for us to get better, yeah, I’d say 50-50,” Epstein said.

Epstein wouldn’t go into detail, but obviously the most coveted Cubs player is starter Matt Garza, followed by Scott Feldman and closer Kevin Gregg.

Teams are scouting the Cubs heavily these days and will continue to do so until the July 31 trade deadline. Boston has sent its main scout, former Cubs assistant to the general manager Gary Hughes, to follow the team on the West Coast swing of the nine-game road trip. The Cubs obviously know the Red Sox system well, and figure to be asking for two or three top prospects in return.
