Cubs, Reds close to swapping Marshall for Wood

This is a headline that I saw in the pretty reliable MLBTraderumors.com website. 

This deal makes so much sense for both teams. First off, don't get me wrong I love Sean Marshalland agree that he is one of the top left handed relievers in the game, but the Cubs problem right now isn't with relief help. The Cubs really need to bolster the starting rotation and what better guy than young off and on phenom Travis Wood (age 24). Travis Wood has all the possibility in the world to improve to a dominant #2/3 SP. He could possibly be a nice fixture going forward with Matt Garza in the rotation. I also heard there may be a copuple of minor leauge players heading our way in this deal too.

What do you think? 
Travis Wood (age 24 SP CIN) and a couple minor league depth players 
FOR
Sean Marshall (age 29 LHRP - 1 year remaining on contract)

I like it. Let me know your thoughts.
