Well that should pretty much kill any shot the Cubs have of getting Roberts. They don't have much to offer besides Vitters...

BTW what a horrible deal for the Cubs. They could have traded Ceda for more or at least put him in a package.

Wouldn't surprise me to see this turn into the Bautista for Grimsley trade for them...

If it turns out to be Bautista for Grimsley minus the roids then I guess the Cubs did alright.

Is he supposed to replace Wood?

And this is a bad deal for the Cubs. A solid prospect for a sort of mediocre relief pitcher.

I will be shocked if Dave isn't extremely pissed by this.

Last year, the Cubs fans told us that they wouldn't deal Ceda in a BRob deal...As it turns out, he apaprently was offered but if they didn't want him in a BRob deal, how on earth could they want him in a Gregg deal.

Ahh, the power of the save category strikes again.

Be shocked then. I don't get extremely pissed about anything related to the Cubs.

I don't like the trade, but still it's pretty meh. Disappointed Ceda didn't have more value, but if he did, Hendry would have probably known that.

The fear I have is that Kevin Gregg will struggle with his control early and land deep in Piniella's doghouse by May.

Here's the thing.

Gregg has put up a 4.00 ERA in five years in the majors including a 3.54 and 3.41 ERA in the last two years.

Ceda has never thrown a single pitch to a major league hitter except for in spring training.

I wouldn't say the Cubs won out big on this deal, but as a Cubs fan I'm actually pretty happy to have a reliable bullpen arm especially with the news that Kerry Wood is not going to be a part of that bullpen next year.

Could the Cubs maybe have got more value for Ceda? Maybe. But Gregg is not a bad return by any measure and it if helps the Cubs more this year, I'll be happy.
