  • Jacque Jones was DFA'd by the Tigers. Turns out, he couldn't hit. This means that essentially the Cubs got Omar Infante for free, while the Tigers are left holding the Jones salary. Even if the Tigers find someone to trade him to, they are likely still going to be forking over most of the salary. Of course, Infante was traded to the Braves and is now injured, the Cubs have a decent prospect in Jose Ascanio, and lil Mikey and Ronny C have shown enough to realize that the Cubs didn't really need Infante.
