Signs of life

Sorry for the issues lately, most of those should come to an end in the new year - and chances are that if you're reading this, they are fixed for good.

Anyways, as Wrigley's playing surface is prepped to host a hockey game tomorrow, the front office personnel must have decided to come in for a half day on New Year's Eve, pulling the trigger on a deal that sends Mark DeRosa to the Indians in return for pitching prospects.

Smart money says this is groundwork for a Jake Peavy deal in early 2009.

From the Trib:

After spending much of the last two winters wondering about his job security in Chicago, Mark DeRosa was sent to Cleveland today following the signing of second baseman Aaron Miles. The Cubs acquired three pitching prospects from the Indians for DeRosa -- left-hander John Stevens, who was added to the 40-man roster, lefty John Gaub and right-hander Chris Archer.
