Default Cubs trade DeJesus

To the Nats for PTBNL.

Conveniently, the Nats are in town to play the Cubs.


I'm just glad he is not with the AL again. He hurt us a few times with the Royals.

They are doing their best to pass us for a better draft pick. Theo cannot do wrong with the fans. They are now 70 million dollars better than last year's most profitable team in baseball!

Yikes, I didn't realize those chumps were within 4 games of us in the reverse standings!

Current Reverse Standings:
Astros --
Marlins 6.5
White Sox 8
Cubs 12
Brewers 12.5
Phillies 13
Twins 13
Giants 14
Angels 14
Padres 14.5

Honestly, at this point, I just don't want to lose a 100. Hopefully we still hold on to a top 3 or 4 pick.

And Rizzo is out of the line up as well.

She posted something about how is she going to explain the trade to her 3 year old who sleeps on a Cub pillow every night and loves the Cub clubhouse. I tweeted back to her to buy the kid a new pillow and that the Nats will have a way cooler clubhouse than old smelly Wrigley.

I heard she was acting like a whack job before the deadline, drinking bottles of wine to "endure the stress." Ah, the grueling life of a baseball wife. Hopefully they have malls and day spas in DC.

Quite a bit of drama for a guy that's batting .250 with six homers.

Now it appears that the Nats may not even want to keep him as they placed him right on waivers after acquiring him.

They must have read his wife's tweets.

I am stunned, STUNNED, the Cubs didn't want to keep DeJesus for the next 15 years just for the sake of his kid

Did the Cubs trade Ernie Banks, or Hack Wilson or something ? The way the media was acting last night, you would think they did. I heard the fans even gave him a standing ovation ? Good Lord, it was David Dejesus. He was a .250 hitter who played for them a couple years. I know dumbass Cubs fans are prone to giving standing ovations where they aren't warranted, but that and the media's waxing philosophical over the guy were up there with some of the more puzzling things I've seen from Cub-dumb.

That's pretty much status quo when it comes to Cubs local media coverage unfortunately. There is always quite a bit of fuss about mundane things.

I know Cubbie fans love to wax pseudo-psychiatric crap about Sox fans but they sure get worked into a lather when any player says positive stuff about the Cubbies. Wonder what the junior Freud's would call that?
