The deal is done, according to Bruce Levine. Pending physicals, the Cubs will send Sean Marshall to the Reds in exchange for 3 young building blocks for the future: Travis Wood and two minor league players who have not yet been named.
I talked about this deal recently and thought it was an okay deal if it was just straight up. Not great, but understandable. The fact that the Cubs got two more players makes this potentially a very good trade for the team down the road when the team is ready to compete.
You can read my original take here.
I will update this piece when I know the two names going over to the Cubs along with an analysis of those players.
