Fresh off of rotoworld and I just heard it confirmed on ESPN.
Cubs acquired RHP Kevin Gregg from the Marlins for RHP Jose Ceda.
Gregg has 61 saves the last two years, but he's hardly a dominant reliever and he's looking at a salary of around $4 million for next season. If the Marlins were only going to move one of their arbitration-eligible players this winter, he should have been the one to go. Of course, he's actually the fourth. The Marlins figure to replace him with Matt Lindstrom, though if a rehabbing veteran wants to sign cheap (Jason Isringhausen?), some sort of competition could be set up.
I can't say I'm too upset about this one. Not at all, actually. Thoughts?
