while the imminent move of a.j. burnett to baltimore looms, a more important development for the cubs hit the wire today as the white sox dfa'd shingo takatsu.
takatsu is japan's career saves leader and has a major-league career line of 91 ip, 70 h, 82 k, 37 bb, 3.46 era, 1.18 whip and .211 baa. for a team that is sending roberto novoa to the mound regularly, this is an easy call. let's hope hendry makes it.
