Chicago Cubs Receive: Cleveland Indians Receive:
RHP Carlton Smith OF Kosuke Fukudome
OF Abner Abreu Cash
Analysis: This should be a lesson to teams like the Mariners who are refusing to trade Felix Hernandez despite the franchise's inability to compete. Not only are the Cubs getting two insignificant prospects from Cleveland, but they also are not dumping Fukudome's contract, either. Due to the cash that Cleveland will also receive, the Cubs will only effectively dump $775,000 of salary off of a guy they, for some reason, decided to give $48 million to. Ouch.
