    My wish came true! (half-way)

    The Cubs got Ceaser Izturis for Greg Maddux ( I like)

    The Cubs traded Todd Walker for minor leaguer (didn't like)

    I guess you can take the good with the bad

    I knew that Maddux was leaving, but I hadn't heard that they were shopping Walker around.

    It doesn't suprise me that Walker got traded. He was one of the few guys on the team that had trade value that the Cubs were willing to trade. Lets just hope Jose Ceda is a good pitching prospect, and can help out the starting rotation. Time to go do some research. (If I find out that Ceda is a bullpen guy, I'm going to be pissed. The Cubs need starting pitching if they're going to contend at any point in the near future.)

    He is a starter and he came from the Domincan Republic.

    Re: My wish came true! (half-way)

    I believe it was Maddux and cash for Izturis.. Also, it was Todd Walker and cash for the minor leaguer.. They must have wanted to unload their salaries so bad, that they put some cash in the deals.. That wasn't really a bad trade for the Cubs.. If yoiu look at it, the better days of Greg Maddux are well behind him.. I should know with being a lifelong Braves fan.. The trade involving Walker may not be bad if the guy they traded him for is major league ready in the near future..

    I was looking at the trade from different eyes.. Now my Braves just traded Wilson Betemit to the Dodgers for Willie Aybar, and Danys Baez.. The Braves deseperately need bullpen, and starting pitching help.. This will be Marcus Giles last season in Atlanta, so the trade involving Aybar was a great one.. He plays second base, and is a great leadoff hitter.. Adding Baez was just a bonus for the Braves.. So with that, I know as a Brave fan, Aybar will be the starting second basemen next season, and also in the leadoff spot..
