Man it's a shame they don't still have Prior. Harden, Prior, and Wood on the same roster is a sig just waiting to happen.

Doesn't seem like the Cubbies gave up a whole lot. The only upside guy I see is Patterson and I don't know if he will be that good. Of course Harden will most likely go down especially with the Cubs propensity to abuse their starters but still, when healthy there is no question about his skills. Guess they are feeling luckier after Prior/Wood.

:-/ I really like Harden, it would be nice to see him stay healthy for the year and compete in some big playoff games.

I agree with Pee Wee. I really like Harden and hope he does well in his chances with the Cubs.

Then again this is Beane that we are talking about. He rarely loses out on these trades and likely sold him high.
