    Cubs Firesale

    It appears both Reed Johnson and Geovany Soto have been traded tonight. Both were pulled from game and immediately were hugging/shaking hands with teammates. Bret Jackson was also pulled from Iowa tonight and is probably heading to Chicago.

    Just commented on this in another thread. Hopefully they got some decent young talent in return.

    This is crazy.

    Nice night to do it. Reed and Soto both had very nice games, and we are killing the Pirates.

    Wow, if they were able to unload Soto for anything more than a bag of balls, Theo is truly a genius.

    Correct. On the other hand, I will not miss post-2008 Soto.

    I wouldn't at all be surprised if he resigned with the Cubs next season.

    Brett Jackson pulled as well, likely getting called up.

    + a billion. Reed plays hard, hustles, and looks like he truly enjoys the game. I've always loved having him in a Cubs uniform.
