Cubs Get Rich Harden

While I'm refreshing for the freaking lineup like a dumbass, Jim Hendry and Billy Beane go and pull a trade.

The Cubs are getting pitchers Rich Harden and Chad Gaudin for Sean Gallagher, Matt Murton, Eric Patterson and Josh Donaldson. 

Hold on...

With just one nightmarish half-inning having prevented them from a
sweep of the Cardinals this past weekend, the Cubs return to the 33-10
Confines for three games against the Reds, who just completed a
four-game sweep of the Nationals, which is very similar to winning four
games from an actual Major League Baseball team.

Ryan Dempster puts his perfect record at Wrigley this season (9-0)
up against Aaron Harang, who the Cubs have already thumped twice this
year. (For that matter, Dempster had one of his lesser home starts of
the season against the Reds back on April 15th, allowing five walks,
five hits and four runs in a game the Cubs won anyhow, 9-5.)

In all, the Cubs and Reds have split six games this game, with each club taking two of three on its home field.
