Still No Word Yet on Marquis Trade

Posted on 03 January 2009 by Lou

Still no word yet from Cubs central whether or not Jason Marquis has been traded to the Colorado Rockies for reliever Luis Vizcaino. Rumors abounded on New Year’s Eve that a deal was close to exchange the 2 veteran pitchers. Cubs GM Jim Hendry has said that the move would be made in order to free up about $5 million in salary which would then allow the Cubs to sign free agent, switch-hitting Milton Bradley to play right field. We’ll keep you posted as soon as we hear anything concrete…

We’re definitely gonna miss Marquis’ bat and his sweet pinch-running skills (not to mention his 6 earned runs in 5+ innings box scores).
