|The Marlins have continued in their quest to start the 2006 season with none of their 2005 players and have shipped Juan Pierre off to the Chicago Cubs. Rumors had been swirling about possibly trading Scott Proctor and Sean Henn so that Pierre could take post in the Yankees’ centerfield, but those pipe dreams have been crushed by the four-year deal agreed upon by Pierre and the Cubs.
I really was hopeful for the Henn-Proctor-Pierre deal, but since it is no longer possible I’m at least hoping that having to cross one more outfield option of their list will light some sort of metaphorical fire under the Yankees officials. I am eager to hear what sort of centerfield trade ideas the Yanks come up with during these winter meetings…
