Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season
So far the Cubs have traded:
- Soto to the Rangers foir minor league pitcher Jacob Brigham and a player to be named later or cash.
- Maholm & Johnson to the Braves for right-handed pitchers Arodys Vizcaino, a top prospect who had season-ending Tommy John surgery in April, and Jaye Chapman to the Cubs. The Braves also got cash in the deal.
The Dodgers are still interested in Dempster, but after acquiring Shane Victorino from the Phillies, may no longer need Soriano.
As a Braves fan I like the Maholm deal and we get a guy in Johnson that rakes left handed pitching, which the Braves really need. Maholm also adds another lefty to the rotation. I like Dempster but didn't want to give up Delgado for a two month rental especially if he would be wishing he was in L.A. the whole time.
Searching for something, a million miles and a ways to go.
