Great players for prospects???

Hello fellow cub fans.

Before I ask my question, I want to say a big THANKS to AL and everyone else on this board for this BLOG!

I live in Orlando (anyone care to trade cubs tickets for theme park passes, let me know), quite possibly the worst sports town in America. Seriously! Thank god I get to see the Bears play this Sunday!!!Anyways, I have live here for 8 years and come back to Chicago a few times a year for some Baseball.
Once again, AL and everyone else, thanks from a 28 year old Cubbies fan!

Now, on to business; is it just me, or are the cubs not making the right moves, First Beckett and Lowell for 3 minor leaguers, and now the same for Delgado. These ball players are past All-Stars and they are being traded for up and comers. The only thing we hear down here is that the cubs minor league system is one of the best. If we have some good prospects, why are the cubs not trying to make similar moves.

Thoughts?
