Jacque Jones trade to Florida a bust, still with the Cubs

 Chicago Cubs general manager Jim Hendry told Jacque Jones he will not be going to Florida.

Jacque Jones trade to Florida a bust, still with the Cubs Cubs GM admitted that the deal was close, but that it fell apart after Hendry had time to think about the trade that would have sent Jacque Jones and a large portion of his remaining salary to Florida for a minor-league prospect.

 Hendry continued: "At the end of the day, I just wasn't going to be rushed into it and make a deal that I didn't think was good for us. We just couldn't kind of round it off and finish it. I've had some honest conversations with Jacque, and he knows where I stand. I told him I always do what's best for the Cubs first. He knows that, and I think he's comfortable with how I've gone about it."

 There is still a possibility that Jacque Jones will be dealt before the deadline of July 31st.

 The Cubs put closer Ryan Dempster on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Saturday, with a left oblique strain. The team also transferred pitcher Wade Miller to the 60-day DL.

The Chicago Cups will play Colorado Rockies on Wednesday, with betting odds on the Cubs at -190, according to the online betting website Bodog Sports.
