I am, given the state of Cubs pitching, still shocked that they DFA'd Carlos Marmol.
Not because he was doing the team anything but harm, but because...well, they brought up an outfielder to replace him, right?
They're going to trade pitchers come July.
Gregg, Garza... those are only two but imagine them gone?
Anyway, I'm not sad about Marmol or anything - absolutely the right thing to do but I expect nothing but misery as this summer progresses.
And that's fine, I guess, because the Cubs are going to win it all in a couple years, right?
So here are some Marmol illustrations.
Early on, he was amazing.
Then, we began to get this weird twitch when he came in...
He got the giant contract...
We'll see what happens...
