Paul Maholm and Reed Johnson Traded

Paul Maholm and Reed Johnson have been traded to the Atlanta Braves.  No word yet on who the Cubs are getting back in return.  Check back for updates.

Update:  Wow, the Cubs were able to get back two pitchers, Arodys Vizcaino plus Jaye Chapman from the Atlanta Braves.  Vizcaino is really nice piece with a lot of upside.  He missed the year due to Tommy-John Surgery, but was the Braves #3 pitching prospect coming into the year.

White Sox Stay Active; Acquire Liriano

Another arm is off the market, not sure if he was ever “on the market” but Francisco Liriano is headed to the White Sox.  Kenny Williams has been busy this trade season as he sees an opportunity to win now and he’s going for it.  The Sox get Liriano for Eduardo Escobar, and Pedro Hernandez.  That’s two arms that could have went to the Braves in a deal, but didn’t.  Maybe that will make the Braves a little more desperate as we get closer to the deadline and come back at the Cubs for Dempster.  Same goes for the Dodgers, hopefully Garza proves himself healthy in his side session and a deal can be made, although it seems highly unlikely.
