Cubs have offered Prior, Patterson and Rich Hill in exchange for Tejada and Erik Bedard.
No link because it was a radio report and I haven't been able to find it anywhere, but Levine is usually on the inside with both Chicago ballclubs.
As a cub fan this trade is appealing to me. They are not give up Pie or Guzman. Hill might be good pitcher but I don't like 6'5" curve ball pitchers, give me the old number 1 out of those guys. Priors wins have gone down and there is always rumors of guys who are built like him whose numbers have gone down the last two years. Bedard is serviceable.
I've also heard the rumor of then sending Bedard to Oakland for Zito.
