Well, he looked good for a while but once again fell victim to more injuries. Sucks for the Cubbies.

You're dancing on their grave too early, next year will tell who got what from this deal.

Oakland could still end up with zilch of value (I don't think we will) and the Cubs still have Harden for one more year (meh :^ ).

By the way, Josh Donaldson hit .330/.391/.564 after being traded. :-L :-L

Dancing on their grave too early? They just got swept. I guess news travels slowly to Australia.

Hey hey, easy there.

I've disliked Harden for a couple of years now. Did anyone else notice the significant dip in velocity towards the end of this season and in the playoffs??

His velocity usually dips to zero, because he's on the DL. What the Cubs got out of him this year was extraordinary.
