Blockbuster deal going down???

This is from a emailer of mine who also emailed me about the Marquis deal a week before it happened, but he also emailed me the Cubs were getting Renteria last year but that didn't pan out. So here it is take it for what its worth-

This is a move for the ages. The Cubs are in discussion with Boston and Nationals about a blockbuster deal! Here is the scoop-

Cubs get Ryan Church and JD Drew

Nats get CoCo Crisp, Matt Murton, and Ryan Dempster

Red Sox get Sean Marshall, Austin Kearns, Ronny Cedeno, and Wil Ohman

You heard it from Prophet79 first. Remember I tipped you off on the Marquis signing!

Take it for whats its worth. It seems fair to me but this could just be one of the unfounded rumors. Lets see if anyone else can confirm this trade or at least tell me if it has some truth to it.

I really really hope this is not a rumor.Drew OBP 373 and Church OBP 349. Plus i see Matsui playing ss with an OBP OF 342. Please don't let this be just a rumor. Nick I

I hope this isnt a rumor either. Its a very fair deal but unfortunatly none of my sources have responded to confirm or deny this rumor. So its a waiting game right now.

Hi, Anonymous --

Kaz Matsui sucks.

Definitely a fair trade all around. Just kind of nervous bout giving Church a starting job, as he seemed to be a part time player for a lowly team like the Expos/Nats all his years. Then of course there is always Drew's negative rep for being sort of a passionless player, although of course his numbers have been great and he did help the BoSox win this past WS.

I think Church would be the Fourth outfiedlder and share time with Pie and Drew. Church is an all around good player and would love to see him or Drew on the Cubs.

First priority to me is Fukudome tho!

If we Fukudome, wouldn't that make this trade "over-kill?" It seems to me that if this deal goes through, it will be because Fukudome stays in Japan.

supercapo, I do agree it would be overkill. The only way I see this deal going down is if Fukudome goes to another team or stays in Japan. If Fuk comes to the US, I dont think there is any other team that will pay him as much as us. Hendry wants a power hittng, lefty for RF that has high OBP and good fielding. Fukudome is the only free agent that has all those qualities.. I think its either him or a trade or settling for Bradley, Stewart or Wilkerson.. Which I dont want to happen.

Hi flotsam yes matsui sucks but the rumor before said we are getting him. I would rather have castilo at second and batting second, but no castillo rumors. Nick I
