Cubs Trade Rich Hill to Baltimore for PTBNL

Cubs Trade Left-Handed Pitcher Rich Hill to Baltimore For Player To Be Named
02/02/2009 11:36 AM ET
MLB.com

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs today traded left-handed pitcher Rich Hill to the Baltimore Orioles for a player to be named.
Hill, who turns 29 on March 11, went 18-17 with a 4.37 ERA (164 ER/337.2 IP) in 64 appearances (57 starts) in all or part of four seasons with the Cubs (2005-08). The southpaw went 11-8 with a 3.92 ERA (85 ER/195.0 IP) in a career-high 32 starts in 2007 but went 1-0 with a 4.12 ERA (9 ER/19.2 IP) in five starts with the Cubs last season before being optioned to Triple-A Iowa on May 3.

Originally selected by the Cubs in fourth round of the 2002 Draft, Hill split the 2005 and 2006 seasons between the majors and the minors before spending the entire 2007 campaign in the big leagues. After beginning the 2008 campaign with the Cubs, Hill made 13 minor league starts following his option on May 3, going 4-7 with a 5.85 ERA (31 ER/47.2 IP) in those minor league outings with Iowa, Single-A Daytona and Rookie-level Mesa.

Lou hates him, so he's gone. I wouldn't be suprised if Wuertz is next.

he was good for one season and then struggled i agree it would have been nice to get rid of him when he was worth something but then again he was doing good then so why trade someone whos doing good.

If Hill was pitching in 2008 like he did in 2007 the Cubs don't go after Harden at the deadline and instead probably get a bat. There's a lot of what-ifs involved once you get going.

I understand Hill getting traded. He needed a change of scenery and a fresh start, plus he is out of options. For Baltimore, it's a great low risk\high reward move. But if i'm the Cubs, why not trade Hill for a similar type of player. You know, another out of options player who needs a change of scenery, instead of the nothing they are getting now. Guys like Andy Marte(CLE), Boof Bonser(MIN), Robert Andino(FLA), fit that bill. Oh well, another Cubs player given away for close to nothing.

Hendry was on the radio and saying that he wanted to find a place for Rich where he could succeed and move forward, that even in his struggles, Rich has been a class act kid. From what I understand Rich has worked with some of the coaches on the O's and is familiar with them, and vice versa. I even read where he may even be able to get into the rotation there.... as far as getting a PTBNL, I guess it's hard to judge the full effect of the trade until then. Good luck to him... I was really pulling for this kid to do good. My fave Rich Hill outing... the infamous AJ/Barrett game!
