We got straight cash money for Izturis

So, it's finally been announced what we got in return for the Cesar Izturis trade: "an undisclosed amount of cash."

Oh, and the peace and security that only getting rid of the Wizard of Iz can provide.

Seriously, though: the Pirates didn't have a warm body somewhere in the minors they were going to send us? At all? Well that's kind of a letdown, isn't it? I mean, I understand that all the Pirates got was Cesar the Wonder Out. But was Benjamin Franklin on the disabled list? Did the Pirates have to collect pop cans around Pittsburgh and drag them all to the nearest Giant Eagle to get enough money to send to the Cubs?

...yeah, now that I think about the can thing, that's probably not too far from the truth.
