Idea: Trade Sergio Mitre

The Cubs are suffering from their lack of bench these days and with Prior and Wood coming back within the week and Jerome Williams doing well enough to warrant another start, maybe the Cubs should think of trading Sergio for some bench help. I know this may seem short sighted, but I don't have much faith in Sergio to be anymore than a #4 starter and those are easy to come by, but bench players are a scarcity for the Cubs the last few years. The Cubs should trade him now before he has a few more starts like the last 2 and reduces his trade value to nil.
The Cubs also need to shore up the pen with some real pitchers, but the Cubs need to take babysteps at first and then maybe they will realize what they need to do. I also know people say they need a lead-off hitter, but I still think they have one in Todd Walker, but Dusty is too blind to see that.

  • Trading Mitre could work, but I think Hendry isn't that stupid to really get rid of him. This kid has good stuff. So what if he wasn't good today? Maddux has bad starts too.

    I think Hendry should be looking at trading Corey Patterson right now.

  • Well I have never been to high on Mitre. It is not just this last performance. I do think now is the time to trade him, but I could be wrong.

  • A Mitre type pitcher is easy to come by, but a BENCH player is hard to find?!?! Whether or not it is a good idea to trade Sergio, that logic is awful.
