Big deal... remember a couple years ago when they thought they had the wild card in the bag when they signed Nomar?

Like the old saying goes, "one monkey don't stop no show"!!!

Nothing on NSBB either. And I flipped to CLTV and they were talking Bulls and Bears.

I'm guessing CLTV mentioned they would talk about the possibility of Zito coming this way (stemming from the speculation yesterday). There is absolutely no sign of this being a done deal.

Might get Zito, one of the guests also said they might get Pierre, just speculation no trade has been made yet

I just turned on CLTV--Lou Canelis is PREDICTING the Cubs will get Pierre and Zito this week.

CBSSportsline.com is silent.

The local television stations have not interrupted their regularly scheduled programming to bring us this breaking story.

Much rather face him in a cubs uniform here in chicago than in an oakland uniform out at that godforsaken dump they call a stadium in California.

They mentioned the talk about the POSSIBLE trade. It isn't a done deal. They've only heard reports on the trade, calm down. The Cubs would be trading Wood for Zito.

Hold on gang! Ryan Baker at Ch. 5 has big news leading the 10:00 news!

The news (drum roll). Bears win 8 in a row!

Whew.

I think we should start waiting until a confirmation on these deals (rumors) before we start threads...

Otherwise the results could be catastrophic (See: Trade Deadline, 2005)

Man, that's what this forum is for- rumors. The confirmed stuff is in the Clubhouse or Talking Baseball.

Who cares? We're still the champs and they still have no infield or a leadoff hitter. Everyone who is freaking out needs to take some of these pills.

or a center fielder, right fielder, manager, or a third baseman who can't opt out of his contract after the 2006 season.

Hey guys, I was in another room but I heard on TV that the Cubs have traded Corey Patterson and Michael Wuertz for Bobby Abreu. Either that or Katie Couric might be moving to nights. I'm not sure which but I figured I'd make a guess and start a thread.

:threadsucks

Who cares if they get Zito?

Why would Beane want to trade Zito is he is supposedly working on an extension with him, and after the Loaiza signing he mentioned him by name talking how their staff is possibly the best in the AL? :?:

Not saying there's no chance of it. I'm just really skeptical of this recent talk of trading Balsa Wood for Zito.

Lou Kanellis sucks too.

Yes, but there's a difference between a rumor and titleling the thread "Cubs get Barry Zito"

You just know with a title like that people on here are going to lose it, so confirmation on deals, especially one like this, is pretty important.

Shouldn't everyone have caught on when the breaking news source was CLTV.
LOL. CLTV is a joke.

To I want Mags Back defense, It was very misleading on CLTV. For a good 10 minutes they talked about the possibility of a trade and then they broke into the segment on the bulls to say

" This just being reported, The Cubs have reached a deal to aquire Barry Zito, the deal has not been finalized, but they have reached an agreement".

I thought it was serious too, so cut the guy some slack. Not like he's (a) making up rumors to post or (b) has a source called mlbtraderumors.com. Now Cltv isnt much, but the way they broke into another segment made it seem like a done deal.

Why would the Cubs need Zito, they have Wood, Prior, Zambrano, Maddux, and Glendon... that's gotta be the best starting rotation in baseball.

Tell me about it. This forum is even now seeing people making up trades and three ways trades they'd like to see.:?: :rolleyes:

What ever happend to the Wood to the bullpen idea?

The Cubs aren't paying Wood $11 million to be a reliever. It's really that simple. Even if Wood relieving is the best option, they won't do it simply because of that enormously high salary.

What ever happend to the Wood to the bullpen idea?Don't you remember the Andy Ashby rule? You cannot pay a starter more than $8 Million to rot in the 'pen, no matter how bad they are. Although I'm not surprised for a second that the Dodgers were the ones behind it.
