Legendary right-hander Greg Maddux is leaving the Chicago Cubs after all: He's headed to the Los Angeles Dodgers, who acquired him seconds before the trade deadline Monday for shortstop Cesar Izturis, CBS SportsLine.com has learned.
Maddux, who approved the deal because the Dodgers are a contender and because he owns homes in Dana Point, Calif., and Las Vegas, immediately will join the Los Angeles rotation. The move also reunites Maddux with Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti, who was an executive with the Cubs early in his career, during Maddux's first tour with the Cubs.
Izturis is a Gold Glove shortstop who missed much of the first part of this season following Tommy John ligament transfer surgery. He returned just before the All-Star break and had been playing third base in Bill Mueller's absence. But when the Dodgers acquired Wilson Betemit from Atlanta last week, it made Izturis even more expendable.
Dash: I fell asleep in the 3rd quarter of both games. Bucks/Hawks was hype though.

Dash: Bucks are not a good team and are only in because Nets/Hawks got injured. They look several steps behind Phoenix.

kfilament: its interesting how everyone wanted to put an asterisk next to last years champions, but honestly this year seems fluky as hell with injuries, etc., but yeah, hate CP3 as a grizz fan by not mad to see him win one.
