Waiting for the other shoe

What do you mean "I get to play with Kerry again?"

Sending DeRosa to the Indians for a bunch of prospects?


A: Cost-cutting move. This is the Cubs - they don't do cost-cutting, especially when DeRosa was one of the better clutch bats (and gloves) for the team last year.

B: Getting a "premier player" with the freed payroll/prospects acquired. So who's it gonna be? (cough BRADLEY cough)

Milton Bradley would be a good acquisition, but I've got a feeling this trade was to position themselves for another run at Peavy. This would give them a couple of pitching prospects that San Diego could eventually (try to) replace Peavy with.
