Jim don't pull that trigger yet.....

Jim don't make this Tejada for Prior trade yet...

I think if you all thought about this proposed trade of Tejada for Prior, amongest others, you would see this is not good from the Cubs prosective.  I know Tejada is a great hitter and perhaps the best shortstop in baseball, but he is really not the type of hitter the Cubs need right now.  We have two really good All-Star type hitters from the right side in D-Lee and A-Ram.  The Cubs really need a number two in the order hitter who will be on-base for Lee, Ramirez, and Jones, otherwise it will be like in 2004 when we hit homeruns but they more mostyly solos.  I know Prior has been hurt as well but we don't want another Greg Maddux, and yes I know that Greg was a free agent but that doesn't matter.  Bedard is good but he's not great and not dominating like Prior can be.  I wouldn't trade Patterson or Hill but unless Jim can has another move to aquire a dominating type starter to replace Prior this could end up being another Lou Brock trade and trust me none of us wants that.
