Jason Marquis-S-Cubs Dec. 30 - 8:20 pm et
In a deal expected to be finalized next week, the Rockies will get Jason Marquis from the Cubs for Luis Vizcaino, according to the Denver Post.
The Rockies will also get about $1 million, so they'll be taking on just under $5 million in acquiring Marquis to join a rotation set to include Aaron Cook, Jeff Francis, Ubaldo Jimenez and either Greg Smith or Jorge De La Rosa. We're not sure that's an upgrade at all. The Cubs also probably aren't getting any better with the deal, but they're freeing up some money they'll use to bring in a superior starter.
