With Gordon out, let's offer the Cubs Howry for Prior. If they were willing to take Karchner for Garland, who knows.

I'd love that deal if the Cubs took it, but McPhail is smarter than Lynch. The Cubs have Fassero and Farnsworth, both of whom are better than Howry. Even the Cubs aren't stupid even to screw that trade up.

Oh I don't know about that. The Cubs have traded away more talent than the Yankees have had in the 20th century. It just confirms my beliefs that Cub fans are masochistic.

The Cubs would never deal Prior, but hypothetically speaking, as he's a 2001 draftee, he can't be traded until June, and by then the Cubs probably will have resolved their closer issues.

When you post stuff like this, remember, you gotta use the sarcasm color. Everyone loves the sarcasm color.
