I think you might be right about Murton, we all know how the Cubs work; if the Cubs can get nothing for Jones I wouldn't be suprised if they trade Murton because they are able to get "more" for him. DFA Jones and cover his salary the rest of the year, or trade Murton, a substantially cheaper salary and get prospects. I'm still not convinced Hendry has alot of leaverage on making alot of moves because of the sale. Guys like Izturis might be more moveable towards the trading deadline.
