Is Corey Really Gone This Time?

ESPN is reporting that the Cubs have traded Corey Patterson to the Orioles for two minor leaguers. According to the report, the Cubs will be getting 2B/SS Nate Spears and lefthanded pitcher Carlos Perez.

That's not much to get for a guy who was once one of the most highly touted prospects in the minors. Unfortunately, Patterson's stubborness and the Cubs mishandling of him reduced him to nothing more than a major leaguer with unrealized potential. It's been my opinion that Corey would need a change of scenery if he were to ever become the player many thought he could be. It's just sad that the Cubs ended up giving away a guy that had so much promise.
