I had heard rumors over the weekend that the Cubs were working to get Rich Harden and Chad Gaudin from the A’s. Harden’s a good quality starter with a low ERA and the ability to strike out almost 11 per game. The Cubs don’t give up much in return with Sean Gallagher, Matt Murton, Eric Patterson and catcher Josh Donaldson going to the A’s.
A nice way to match the Brewers CC Sabathia. A Zambrano-Harden combition is almost as lethel as a Sheets-Sabathia.
Here come the Cubs in 2008!
