"And this guy, we just call him Feldman."

Feldman was scheduled to start for the Cibs tonight in Oakland. Do we get the honor this week?

What are the Cubs doing? The Orioles are probably dancing to get rid of bums like Arrieta and Strop in exchange for somebody as reliable as Feldman.

Maybe the Cubs think Bosio will fix them.

This is a garbage-in, garbage-out trade. The O's need a hell of a lot better in the rotation than Scott Feldman for the stretch run. The Cubs getting an extra 388 grand in international signings bonus money ( I had no idea MLB allowed this) is the best of this whole trade, and that's not much.

I'd hardly call Feldman garbage this season. Should be a good, inexpensive pickup for Baltimore.

Jesse Sanchez
Int'l slot $ @Cubs get from @Orioles worth $388,100. Could help @Cubs sign No. 1 Int'l prospect Eloy Jimenez if they choose to go that route

Agreed. I like the pickup for the Orioles. Maybe they need more, but he's a guy who will help.

Arrieta is a 27-year-old reclamation project who belongs in AAA. He has a high ceiling, but at some point you cease to be a prospect. Strop recently complained about being booed at home. I don't think he has the makeup to pitch in Chicago.

I agree it's inexpensive but the O's already have enough 5th starter types; they need better if they're serious about contending. Feldman has a 4.81 career AL ERA, over 5 as a starter. O's fans can only hope that they'll keep looking to add an impact SP.

And this trade doesn't hurt them in adding an impact SP, if they go that route, since they gave up little in Arrieta and Strop.

While Feldman has had a pretty mediocre career, it looks like he may have turned a corner this season. Baltimore certainly hopes he can continue his production.

Feldman didn't have much trade value, but could be had. Arrieta is a gamble at this point. Theo is trying to hit it big on the international signings, since they made a minor trade with Houston for more signing pool slots. They made a huge signing by getting Gleyber Torres from Venezuela and Jefferson Meija from the DR.

The bad guys on the Northside now have made 2 trades the last 2 days. Wouldn't it be nice if the White Sox/Hahn made a trade or two also? Give White Sox fans some kind of hope for the 2nd half of the season. Do something/anything to make this lousy team better. It amazes me that Hahn has not done anything to improve this team the last couple of months.

I don't understand this. I thought teams were allotted one lump sum for international signings.

The slot values are new this year and a potential precursor to a full blown international draft someday down the line, maybe as early as 2014
