After failing to reach a long-term extension with the Chicago Cubs this offseason, first baseman Anthony Rizzo shared some thoughts about his future in the organization.

Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Rizzo didn’t provide his reaction to not receiving a new contract, but he did say the business of baseball is as “cutthroat” as ever. 

Rizzo cited the trade rumors around Kris Bryant as evidence of MLB‘s cutthroat nature: “We’re talking about trading the MVP of the league a couple years ago.”

As things currently play out with the Cubs, Rizzo also said ”it would be naive” to think he will finish his career with the organization.
