The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
With Castillo deciding that Flaaridah (as my yiddish grandma used to say) is where he wants to be, the Cubs must set their sights on the remaining second sackers out there. That includes Fernando Vina and Todd Walker. One name that is sure to rise is Mark Grudzelanek. A big NO THANK YOU there.
The real prize is Jose Vidro. It's looking more and more likely that Vlad the Impaler is sticking with MontralSanJuanWashington. That means that the Expos would need to dump some salary.
Looking at the Arizon-Sexson deal, one sees that Milwaukee got 1 good prospect and a bunch of salary. The modern trade math is: The more salary I take from you, the less I give you in prospects. Hence Choi for Lee straight up. Cruz and Wellmeyer for Vidro? How about Cruz and Osprey Boy? For that deal, maybe they take A Gonz too?
Work the phones, Hendry.
