Chicago Cubs trade Milton Bradley to Seattle Mariners for Carlos Silva


    The Mariners and Chicago Cubs have announced a trade that sends outfielder Milton Bradley to Seattle for right-handed pitcher Carlos Silva.

    According to sources familiar with the deal, the Mariners will send a total of $9 million to the Cubs in the deal -- about $3 million in 2010 and about $6 million in 2011.

    That money could allow the Cubs to obtain a center fielder and move Kosuke Fukudome back to right field. They've expressed interest in free agents including Marlon Byrd, Rick Ankiel and Scott Podsednik.

    But they've also explored potential trades for a center fielder -- most prominently, Curtis Granderson, before he was traded to the New York Yankees.

    Silva is owed $11.5 million for both 2010 and 2011; in 2012, he is due either a $12 million option or a $2 million buyout. Bradley is owed about $23 million on his deal.


The Mariners are already the new favorites to win the AL West after adding Cliff Lee and Chone Figgins. But if Milton Bradley behaves himself and puts up power numbers, they could go far in the playoffs.

Cubs should get good stuff out of Silva, but it won't take the sting out of losing Rich Harden.

Yeah, with the 18-32 record he's posted since 2006 and the 4.71 career ERA, I would really be optimistic if I were a Cubs fan.

Rich Harden is known to make three out of every four scheduled starts and pitch well into the fifth inning. I don't think that sting will be missed.

The Cubs had the chance to dump him onto the Twins late last season in exchange for prospects, but chose to pursue the wild card instead. Bad decision.

This is very promising. Hopefully Milton can keep from hurting himself while going after the 1st base coach. I am also looking forward to seeing Lee going back to back with Felix...Should be a good season.

I'm not thrilled about the Milton Bradley era, but I'm willing to try it over seeing fat Silva give away games by the second inning. It was lost money for the Mariners either way, so why not try this.

...and Jerry Crasnick's reporting (sports.espn.go.com) that Pavano's replacement has been found too. $16.5 mil/year for five years of A.J. Burnett sounds very...Pavano-esque. I hope my feeling of dread goes away.
