    you're not reaching him. you are acquiring him. unless you are saying that adding some B- specs gets to the performance of Josh Johnson...but that doesn't put him on this team.

    I don't really understand how the Cubs do this. No other organization has so many "almost trades" as the Cubs.

    So officially there is "no deal," But it's just a formality.

    My god why the **** us does this kind of **** happen. I don't understand how such a air tight front office can be the front of big controversy trade leaks that aren't solidified. It's mind blowing.

    It's going to be hell to try and find out about moves before they are official with this front office. Nothing ever leaks, and they will just be even more tight-lipped now with the Dempster and now Marmol debacles.

    Unless we extend Haren or ship him off at the deadline for prospects then well this deal is nothing of real importance.

    To put this in perspective, the only team with more than HALF of that were the Giants, with 4.
    LOL really?

    I'd love to see the numbers of big contracts that weren't given NTC's.

    The amount of NTC's given out by Hendry really wasn't a big deal. Regardless you don't give those NTC's you don't win back to back division titles.

    Cubs trade with Angels is off, at least for now. Show's over. You don't have to go home but you can't stay here.

    Christ sake I am going back to bed. I read the ****ing ticker during the Heat Knicks game and saw this and jumped up like an *** hole to grab my laptop.
