Ok, here is the official deal. Hang with me, because it’s confusing.

The Cubs get:
Nomar Garciaparra – SS
Matt Murton – OF

Boston gets:
Orlando Carbrera – SS
Doug Mientkiewicz – 1B

Montreal gets:
Alex Gonzalez – SS
Brendon Harris – 3b
Francis Beltran – RP

Minnesota gets:
Justin Jones – SP

I will post my reactions on this unbelievable deal later tonight. Right now I am still in shock.
