Cubs send:


RF Rubi Silva (AA)

SP Branly Crisostomo (S A)

SP Eric Bascombe ®

3B Mark Reynolds (MLB)


Astros send:


CF Michael Bourn (MLB)


The Cubs have had some interest in Bourn since the Seattle days, and bring him in to reinforce the outfield for our championship run. This probably puts young defensive stud Alberto Madrid into a fourth OF role, which will suit him well. We hope Bourn can still hit some! In return, we shed the contract of Mark Reynolds who was without a spot after the Goldschmidt trade, and send some interesting prospects to Houston. We'll miss Branly the most, who was acquired in the Kerry Wood deal of 2012.


Thanks Matthew, and welcome to the league!

GO CUBS GO ... to the playoffs!

Accepted. We've been looking to shed some more contracts and get prospects, and this saves us close to $7 million and gets us 2 young talented pitchers and an OF prospect we really liked. Taking on Reynolds will also slot him in to be our primary pinch hitter for the season.

Thanks for the very easy talks, and hope Bourn can help you out.
