Great news Cubs fans. There's news of an impact trae in the NL Central. No it's not the Cubs, Cards, or Brewers getting late inning help.
LaTroy Hawkins was recently acquired by the Houston Astros, further cementing themselves in the basement of the NL Central. Should make that race for last with the Pirates interesting to watch, needless to say.
Sources close to the trade said "Although the Pirates remain the team to beat for dead last in the Divison, the Astros have made a significant leap toward that feat with this trade." Actually, no one said that but me, and I'm not close to the trade, but it's still funny :D
Bada bum bum bum. Another minute bites the dust...
