Ouch. That's gotta HURT...

With Nomar having gone down and out for, at best current guess, two months, the Cubs need a replacement. [As an aside, that's what happens to people who stare at our friend's butt] I expect the D'backs will trade Royce Clayton to the Cubs to fill their need, and get decent pitching help in return. What's that ringing sound? Oh, it's my alarm clock...

Back in reality, a more credible scenario is Craig Counsell, and while Craig has been great at leadoff, it's unreasonable to expect his OBP to stay up at its current .448 figure, given its career level of .345. "Sell high" would seem the appropriate phrase here. Even Alex Cintron might be a credible candidate to send to Chicago, and they have no shortage of [cough, Sergio Mitre] arms we could use. We can, but hope...
