8/27 Cubs acquire Recker

The Cubs have acquired catcher Anthony Recker from the Athletics in exchange for catcher/infielder Blake Lalli. Recker was batting .265 with nine home runs at Triple-A Sacramento. He had been designated for assignment on Aug. 20. In 18 games over two seasons with the A’s, Recker hit .146. He was an 18th round pick in the 2005 Draft. Recker, who turns 29 on Wednesday, will join Triple-A Iowa’s roster. To make room on the 40-man roster, left-handed pitcher Scott Maine was designated for assignment.

another weak hitting catcher. .146 average over 2 seasons with Oakland. hope Steve Clevenger( who i really like) and Wellington Castillo have some long and productive years with the Cubs. i knew the Cubs had no room. for Adrain Gonzalez. but was kinda hoping the Cubs would pick up Josh Beckett.( no worst then cyclo Carlos Zambrano, even Ozzie couldn,t control him) but i guess head problem Beckett is now the Dodgers problem. just hope they knock the Cincinnati Reds out of the play-offs.
