Trade Announcement

The Cubs traded Jermaine Van Buren today to the Boston Red Sox for a PTBNL. This trade was made because the Cubs need to clear a few spots off the 40 man roster because of the signings and the anticipated future signings of the Cubs. I don't know if I agree with dumping Jermaine when Wellemeyer probably could have been dumped for a PTBNL. I am hoping the Cubs get a semi-decent prospect for Van Buren, though I know he hasn't done much in his career yet, he shows promise and if there is an injury in the pen in 06 he might have come in very handy.
