Hail Cesar

The Cubs acquired Cesar Izturis for Greg Maddux.

I know some won’t be unhappy to see him go, and while it was fun to see him win #300 with the Cubs (that's him in the background), we did get the 2004 Gold Glove shortstop, though he has had Tommy John surgery since then.

He appears to be not much offensively, and is hitting a robust .196 this year during day games.

Izturis to Perez to Nevin.

Doesn't exactly roll of the tongue.
