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!
The Chicago Cubs moved into a tie in the basement with Houston with Friday’s win against the Cardinals. Felix Pie got his first major league homerun and it is the first homerun for a Cubs outfielder this season.
Mark Prior is done for the 2007 season after having surgery on his shoulder on Tuesday. The doctors are confident he’ll pitch again.
Derek Lee got his first homerun this season in TWednesday’s win against the Brewers.
The Cubs continue their series against the Cardinals Saturday at 3:55 pm on FOX. Carlos Zambrano takes the mound against Adam Wainwright.
