The Cubs have acquired veteran righty Steve Trachsel from the Orioles for 1B/3B Scott Moore and righty reliever Rock Cherry. Trachsel has started 25 games this season for the Orioles and he was 6-8 with a 4.46 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP. In 140.2 innings he allowed 151 hits, walked 69 batters and whiffed 45. This trade makes little sense to me as Sean Marshall (likely to be replaced) has pitched better than Trachsel this season. Marshall has started 17 games this season and he is 7-6 with a 4.04 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP this season for the Cubs.
