    Great Guy. I am glad we were able to get rid of him while we still could get something out of him.

    Re: Cubs trade DeRosa to Indians

    Most valuable guy on the team last year. With him and Marquis being traded it makes me think they are trying to stock up on some prospects to send to San Diego.

    Article says this isn't a precursor for Peavy, but seems that way. I suppose they are signaling to Bradley that he will be the man in right.

    Re: Cubs trade DeRosa to Indians

    Looks like they picked up Aaron Miles too. Nice utility guy, but it seemed like his production dropped after the move to St. Louis. Switch hitter so it adds a left handed bat.

    I was just going to post that as well. I am not to excited about it.

    ESPN - Chicago Cubs, Aaron Miles agree on two-year contract

    Re: Cubs trade DeRosa to Indians

    Denver Post is reporting a deal to send Luis Vizcaino to Chicago for Jason Marquis. That smells a lot like a salary dump. Vizcaino has been a bad locker room guy in Colorado. It's a good deal for the Rockies though, Marquis pitches very well at Coors.

    Proposed trade would add Marquis to rotation - The Denver Post

    Re: Cubs trade DeRosa to Indians

    The Cubs get Jeff Stevens, Chris Archer, and John Gaub. Stevens and Archer are non prospects and Gaub is intriguing, puts up some decent numbers, looks like a late releif prospect.

    I think we're making room for Bradley and Peavy. That would be a good off-season.

    Re: Cubs trade DeRosa to Indians

    Great - losing DeRosa means that this guy is the 1st option off the bench if Fontenot gets hurt. The Cubs lose the most valuable guy on the team for prospects for a guy who once threw the ball to the ump because it was wet.

    Re: Cubs trade DeRosa to Indians

    these trades set up many good things for the cubs

    1. Free salary to get Milton Bradley who is one of the best switch hitters in baseball
    2. Allows Mike Fontenot to play everyday at 2B. He is a great player, a lefty, and with more at-bats will put up huge numbers
    3. Stockpiles prospects to make a play for Jake Peavy or another player in a trade

    ...if these guys arent used for trades, it just shows the cubs realizing they need to reload the farm system.


    ALL IN

    Re: Cubs trade DeRosa to Indians

    This was a stupid trade what the cubs don't need are three AAA pitchers we need a second baseman so unless this is the beginning of giving baltimore the prospects the want in return for Brian Roberts the cubs screwed up big!
