Yank’s loss of Wang could cost Cubs

With Chien-Ming Wang’s foot injury likely to keep him out the remainder of the season, that could cost the Cubs in their ability to make deadline deals in July.  The Yankees already had pitching problems contributing to their dismal start to the season.  Granted, many franchises would be pretty happy being 4 games over .500 at this point, but the Yanks tend to have higher expectations. 

With the Yankees in desperate need of starting pitching, the winning bidder will likely pay a dear price for the services of CC Sabathia and any other front line starter that may become available prior to the July 31 trading deadline.  And the team the doesn’t get Sabathia might have to settle for more of a 4th or 5th caliber starter.  So this injury could be very costly to our beloved Cubbies…
