Cubs Standing Pat?

GM Jim Hendry does not anticipate that the Cubs will make any moves before the trade deadline unless one of his key players sufffers an injury? Kerry Wood’s blister problems are less of a concern with the performance of Jeff Samardizja who is been the equivalent to a significant deal. (Sun Times)

However, Comcast’s Sportsnite’s Peter O’Boyole did a short story the saying that “Hendry has not ruled out pulling off a trade later down the road if the surgically repaired foot of Jim Edmonds does not hold up and he ends up on the D.L.  Jim Edmonds has ben bothered by a sore left foot all year.

O’Boyole went on to say they would be looking for a “left-handed bat for center field to spell Reed Johnson from right handed pitching and to give the team more dept.”

So, have all of the Scott Eyre rumors been just that? We can only hope that the Cubs don’t make a move just for the sake of making a move….We’re looking at you south siders… 

We will update any Cub acquisitions as the day rolls along.



UPDATE – Not a Surprise…Hendry always playing his cards close to his vest…

The Chicago Cubs have talked to a few teams about moving Scott Eyre who has lost the confidence of manager Lou Piniella and will create a potential logjam in the bullpen once Kerry Wood is healthy enough to return to action. There is a good chance that Eyre will be dealt before the deadline on 4pm on Thursday, as general manager Jim Hendry will likely not ask for much in return, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.


Yanks, Red Sox eyeing Eyre

That never-ending Yankees-Red Sox intrigue has found its way to Scott Eyre. Both clubs are in on the Cubs left-hander, who is expected to be moved for a very modest return. But both teams also have him as a back-burner option as they search for more impactful bullpen help.

    So is it a bat or a pitcher or…..

    The Cubs are so stacked I am just trying to figure out where they can get better…i only see a need for a left handed bat…Who is available…that fits….Griffey would have just ridden the bench…I am not sure what he is going to do on th esouth side…all of the CWS outfielders are hitting and fielding better than Griffey…Curious move

    hey mikey,to me it would make more sense to dump howry rather then eyre,were pretty solid with righ handers with the addition off jeff s.,i dunno i guess it take your pick,eyre just hasnt really pitched much at all lately so i guess lou has just gave up on him all around.

  3. mikeychx says:

    Maybe Dunn….but I see him going to the AL and we are already platooning the OF

  4. bozecubbies says:

    yeah that griffey deal is as food as done as long as griffey waives his no trade claus he will be a white sock here in a few hours.i do feel they are gonna need another left-handed bat for cf,well not so much NEED but it would be nice,i just can’t figure out who hendry is thinking of?

  5. mikeychx says:

    where do we really need help? seriously?

    DeRosa just makes our life so much easier – I mean, other than someone to spell Lee at first? Maybe go after a SP?

    Why am I even trying to figure this out….

  6. bozecubbies says:

    honestly we really don’t need the help your right,with dero as super sub and as far as edmonds if he hits the d.l. we always got fuckudome to play center along with reed then fonzie in left and dero in right,we look pretty damn solid id say.

  7. bozecubbies says:

    a SP HUH?that wouls SHOCK me,we got,i think, the best rotation in our division,maybe even the n.l…….everybody except for that damn marquis,you never know what you’ll get from him,but 1-4 are just aces.

  8. bozecubbies says:

    well griffey just ok’ed the deal,he is offically a southsider

    Question: Where can you trade a 38-year-old outfielder who’s average the lowest it’s ever been in a season (.245)?

    Answer: The White Sox. Is this softball? When did MLB teams get FOUR outfielders?

  10. bozecubbies says:

    im starting to think there is somin wrong with woods arm,since when does it take a damn blister 3 weeks or more to heal???

  11. maninthebox044 says:

    Supposedly, there’s a rumor the Cubs want a stronger bat off the bench and Ibanez is the guy they’re looking at.

    As for the blister, I’m going to try not to be a consipracy theorist on this. If the Cubs ARE shopping Eyre, it should signify they’re making room for Wood’s return…I hope.

    “Answer: The White Sox. Is this softball? When did MLB teams get FOUR outfielders?”

    lol,very true,i like that………..and raul ibanez would be a welcomed addition.
