Cubs - Acquired Pierre
Chicago Cubs - Acquired CF Juan Pierre from the Florida Marlins for P Renyel Pinto, P Ricky Nolasco, and P Sergio Mitre.
Pierre is a good leadoff hitter, though his impact and his defense are both typically overrated. He’s not a very good defensive player and his arm is pretty bad, but he will give the Cubs the tablesetter they want. Lee might have ended up with the MVP Award if Pierre had been hitting in front of him instead of the actual goofs that did.
The Cubs aren’t giving up any grade-A prospects here, but when you give away 3 young arms with potential, especially Pinto and Nolasco, there’s a pretty good chance someone will come back to haunt you later. It’ll be quite fun to see the Marlins sort out their arms the next few years, even if they’re doing this rebuilding for ulterior motives.
