Corey Still A Cub...For Now

The "imminent deal" that KIRO radio in Seattle was repotring would send Corey Patterson to the great Northwest in exchange for Gil Meche never materialized. From my vantage point, it appears that the Cubs suddenly received more interest in Patterson than they thought they would, which delayed any trades from happening.

Right now it appears that there are at least four teams in the running for Corey's services; the Orioles, Mariners, Rangers and Nationals. The Rangers and Nationals seem like odd suitors since they each have a plethora of outfielders already. But no matter where Corey ends up, it is unlikely that the Cubs will get much for him in return. Corey's trade value is at an all time low and everyone knows it.
