The Marlins and Cubs have reportedly had preliminary discussions about a deal involving Juan Pierre and Corey Patterson.
Just how much payroll do the Marlins have to shed? Part of the problem is that even GM Larry Beinfest doesn't know the answer to that question right now. Pierre will make at least $6 million and probably $7 million-$8 million in arbitration and he's eligible for free agency after next season, so a trade is a possibility. The Cubs' level of interest may depend on whether Rafael Furcal can be signed.
I would kill for that 1-2 punch.crazyforbaseball wrote:I already like the 1 -2 punch of Pierre and Furcal at the top followed by DLee and Aram....
Of course those guys could give you 100 SB by themselves if Dusty will allow it..
ESPN Radio 1000 is reporting that the Cubs are close to acquiring Juan Pierre from the Marlins for a pair of minor leaguers.
No Corey Patterson? We hope the Cubs wouldn't give up Felix Pie for one year of Pierre. Parting with pitching prospects, say Rich Hill along with Sean Marshall or Renyel Pinto, would be preferable.
CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs added a lefty to the bullpen mix on Thursday, signing free agent Scott Eyre to a two-year contract with a player option for a third year.
Eyre, 33, was 2-2 with a 2.63 ERA in a career-high 86 games with the San Francisco Giants, striking out 65 over 68 1/3 innings. Left-handers hit .182 against him last season, while right-handers didn't fare much better, batting .213. He did better on the road, posting a 1.30 ERA away from home compared to 4.01 ERA in San Francisco.
