Cubs trade Koronka for Freedie Bynum
John Koronka was traded to the Texas Rangers yesterday along with a player to be named later. In return the Cubs will be getting utility man Freddie Bynum from the Oakland A’s. Bynum that can play both middle infield positions as well as all 3 outfield positions. Bynum will be coming off the bench pretty much everyday, but gives the team more speed and options late in the games with double switches etc.
I like this pickup, Koronka really blew ass and I like getting another young fast player that can play more then 1 position.
