The Chicago Cubs acquired pitcher Rich Harden and Chad Gaudin from the Oakland A’s for pitcher Sean Gallagher, outfielders Matt Murton and Eric Patterson, minor leaguer John Donaldson. Harden is signed through 2009 and has number one starter stuff. His problem is that he’s frequently on the disabled list. He spent a month on the DL earlier this season for a shoulder strain. It was his sixth time on the DL in his six year career.

After the Brewers traded for C.C. Sabathia from the Indians on Sunday, the Cubs obviously felt like they had to make a counter move. The NL Central is really heating up to get the trade season started.

Harden is 5-1 with a 2.34 ERA in 13 starts this season.
