Ding, Dong

As reported in this diary, Corey Patterson is now a Baltimore Oriole.

Here's the official press release from the Orioles.

The Cubs receive Nate Spears, a 20-year-old SS who played last year in the Carolina League, and Carlos Perez, a 23-year-old lefthanded starting pitcher who was in the South Atlantic League in 2005.

It's over.

And it's sad, really: that someone with the athletic gifts -- the "tools" we always heard about, but rarely saw -- of Corey Patterson, simply didn't have the head, or the heart, to make it as a major league player.

Good luck to him. Seriously. I don't wish him ill.

I'm just glad he's not a Cub any more.
