Man, was this an obvious one.
So far, the Cubs have gotten rid Ted Lilly, Ryan Theriot, Derrek Lee, and Mike Fontenot.
Those are some pretty good guys, wouldn't you agree?
Wouldn't it be nice if they got rid of some of the bad ones?
Carlos Zambrano is pitching tonight, and the hope is he pitches like a genius and doesn't go Travis Bickle on us so that other General Managers forget Old Carlos and give the Cubs a break and take the guy.
I didn't see but understand Alfonso Soriano hit a clutch triple last night instead of striking out, and the hope is he hits a bunch of homers and nobody hits a fly ball out his way so that other General Managers will be fooled into... Ahh God, who am I kidding? Nobody will take this guy with that contract ever.
Fukudome is doing a good job of playing well enough to garner interest.
Xavier Nady is what? A player to be named later?
Anyway, I read this morning that the Cubs beat the Nats 9-1 and new Cub manager Mike Quade is undefeated! Young Casey Coleman had is way with the Nat's bats, and Livan Hernandez got spanked.
I'm glad to read that Quade isn't just going to throw Tyler Colvin into a new 1st base role because of horrible general management and a weak farm system, but rather try him in mop-up duty to get a taste of it.
And that's all I know.
