The Cubs-Padres trade of four young players, including two minor leaguers and one guy who just barely retained his rookie status for 2012, came about as a function of the Chicago Cubs' front office's recent exodus from San Diego. The deal helps the Cubs fill a need while the Padres convert an area of surplus into some immediate value in their bullpen.
