If the Marlins didn't get that great of prospects for Pierre, my guess is maybe there wasn't that much interest in him?? Three decent prospects isn't that bad though, especially if they can help the Marlins in the bullpen at some point...
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

I also heard an idea floating around, i don't know how legit it actually was but..., that we would trade patterson walker and others to them for those 2 plus gathright which would be a good deal but now that we have pierre is unnecessary.






I don't see any need in us getting patterson period. He would have no use on our team at all. Heck Lugo is worth Patterson and Walker by himself considering how good his 05 was and his 06 salary.

I like this deal a lot. Even though Pierre had a not-so-great OBP last year, he's still got speed on the path's. Hopefully, and this is just dreaming, he'll spark the Cubs like Pods sparked the Sox.

Agreed. Great deal for the Cubs.

Great deal for the cubs. I havent heard anything about Patterson...is he still around?

Also i think this makes d.Lee a legit first round pick this year. The poor lineup infront of him was the only downside of his last year. I can't remember the number of times he would hit a 2 out double with nobody on base. Now they just have to move Wood into the closer role and all you cub fans have to pray Proir can go a season without wrecking his arm one way or another.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I think that this only adds vailidty to the Cubs-Rangers trade rumor that involve Patterson for Mench.

Very "meh" deal. Pierre is a just a quick guy with a weak arm and a low OBP. He'll be servicable as a leadoff hitter, but Patterson would probably have been better in the field.

I guess I'm just not a big fan of Pierre. >_< More than anything, I'm glad this puts to rest any thoughts of the Braves trying to acquire him to play LF (don't ask me why that would make any sense, but I heard it repeated A LOT).

Patterson is still around but probably not for long. And as much as I would love to see Woody closing the Cubs are sticking with Dempster.
