The 5.8 mil is irrelevant..Byrd had a horrible year last year and looks even worse so far this year. When you look at these trades you actually have to take the dollars and cents out of the equation at some point. Understand...the BoSox didn't get the money...they got Byrd. Big difference.
The point the OP was making is that 5.8m dollars cash should get you something better than Bowden and a D prospect. I agree with this. This was a horrendous trade for the Cubs.
