With the Cubs remaining active in the pitching market (Matt Garza,
Brandon Webb), and with Kerry Wood now in the bullpen (making a
rotation move for Andrew Cashner possible), the theoretical glut of
starting pitching is going to have to sort itself out at some point.

To that end, the New York Mets are reportedly
interested in acquiring Tom Gorzelanny from the Cubs. You’ll recall
that the Cubs were thought to be “aggressively” shopping Gorzelanny at
the Winter Meetings, but never ultimately consummated a deal.
Gorzelanny is expected to make $2 to $3 million next year in his
second year of arbitration, so he should carry a good bit of trade
value. No names have yet been discussed.

  • Raymond Robert Koenig

    Gorzelanny, Silva & Soriano for Beltran & prospects.

  • Serio

    Bye Bye Orlando Hudson

    • Ace

      I fear that we may need to put Raymond on suicide watch.

      But man, Hudson got a heck of a contract – two years and $11.5 million.

      • Serio

        I’ll take the first shift

      • CubsFanatic

        Makes you wonder if we even showed interest in him….Its times liek this I wish I was GM….

  • Raymond Robert Koenig

    Don’t worry. No suicide attempt here. I figured Hudson would sign for less. I believe Hendry will make more moves before the start of spring training.
