The Cubs obviously ache for Mark DeRosa

Jul 2, 2009, 11:06 AM EDT

The Cubs have apparently made a trade:

The Chicago Cubs have acquired Jeff Baker from the Colorado Rockies,
according to a source close to the club . . . Baker, an infielder, went
on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 27 and was transferred
to the 60-day DL on May 24. He began a minor league rehab assignment
June 19.

Baker is a utility guy who can play multiple infield and outfield
positions. And he’s injured. This is Jimmy Stewart-in-“Vertigo” level
creepy. Next thing you know the Cubs will be forcing him to grow out
his hair and wear a “DeRosa” jersey to satisfy their profound longing
for their lost love.
