Will Maddux pitch against the Reds? Not that I want to see.

Guess we had no horse in that race then.

No kidding. I know Maddux is on the decline, but I don't think we had any comparable trading chips that could've had the perception of helping LA right now.

just as likely the Dodgers not wanting to help out a team they are competing with.

ESPN was reporting earlier that Mattox would only go to the Dodgers or Padres

Izsturis is a good defender with a so so bat

Dusty will bat him leadoff

Cubs are paying over 1 millon of Maddux's salary in the deal.

I hate being a Cubs fan. They just got a younger version of Neifi Perez.

I do not understand the Dodgers thinking on this deal, nor the recent one with Atlanta. Both are headscratchers and I don't see how they improve the Dodgers today, although that clearly had to be the intent. Lugo is barely average defensively and only slightly an upgrade with the bat, but not enough to make up for Izsturis stellar D. Lugo seems to be Felipe-light in comparison. Maddux is an OK pickup for back of the rotation--for a contender and only for a prospect, not one of the best defensive SSs in the game.

I'll take Izturis' glove over Neifi 10 times out of 10. And I even have a Neifi quote in my signature.

Better than the older version(s) of Neifi Perez that play SS for the Reds
