We'll see if it gets done. Hopefully Maggs signs with the Tigers this weekend.

I thought this rumor has since been debunked?

Listening to Murphy tonight is hilarious. First Murph reads a report from Ken Rosenthal (sp?) who said that a deal is NOT immenent. Murph twists that into a deal is immenent. Then all of a sudden Jerry Hairston is THE ideal leadoff hitter. Murph keeps saying that Hairston is a .300 hitter with a .370 OBP. Well that's what Hairston did last year, in his career he's hit .261 with a career .331 OBP.

The funny twist too is when Murph said that the Cubs will sign Magglio after the deal and that Magglio wanted to come to the Cubs all along.

Once Magglio left I've been saying that he'll go to the Cubs and the hype will be that his dream has always been to play with the Cubs. Then they'll say, he even turned down a better offer from the Sox in order to fulfill his dream with the Cubs.

Later on, Murph was talking about Jerry Hairston Jr. and mentioned that his father played for the White Sox. Then he mentioned that his grandfather also played for the White Sox, but Murph evidently does not know that his grandfather's name was Sam. He went on to call Jerry Jr. "Jerry III" thinking that Sam was "Jerry Sr."

The Associated Press is reporting that the deal is close to done, pending medical tests, approval from Selig and approval from the players' association. The Cubs will pay a "substantial part" of Sosa's $17 million salary this season, and Sosa would agree to avoid his salary in 2006.

The Cubs will receive Jerry Hairston, and at least two prospects, according to the report. Selig's approval is necessary because the trade would involve a transfer of $1 million or more.

Too bad. It's always a shame when Cub fans get their way. I was hoping they'd be stuck with Sammy. I'm surprised he's willling to void his 2006 salary. He must really want out of Chicago.

CBS 2 and ABC 7 led the 10:00 news with the Iraqi elections. What did NBC 5 lead with? This:

Yeah, I was hoping the MLBPA would not let him void that clause for 2006's salary. That made it a lot easier to pull this one off. As it is, the sCrUBS are gonna eat a "substantial" portion of Sosa's $17M for 2005.

What's the point of this move for Baltimore? They are still not better than N.Y. and Boston. Give them another year or two and they will have to trade everyone again.

HE GONE!(hopefully) While I would laugh to see the Scrubs stuck with him, it would also be nice to not have his sorry keister in Chicago any more.

Good for Chicago, terrible for Baltimore. I'm moving there in a few weeks, that's the last thing I want to be greeting me.

ESPNews is reporting it as "Breaking news" in their little box in the corner.

"Cubs will trade Sosa to Orioles"
