Cubs' Trade Options

Posted on: July 30, 2009 12:03 pm
Cubs search:

The Cubs don't want switch hitter Milton Bradley to give up batting left-handed as an answer to his seasonlong problems from that side of the plate. But sources told the Chicago Sun Times that one possibility being discussed is limiting him to a platoon role -- if the Cubs can acquire a left-handed hitter who can play right field.

Specifically, the Cubs have looked into the Royals' Mark Teahen and the Marlins' Jeremy Hermida, who were weak blips on the Cubs' radar early last winter before they zeroed in on Bradley in early November.

Please Hendry do the right thing! You shipped off one Mark for a couple bags of potato chips, trade for Teahen. He can play 2b or 3b if Rami gets hurt and has a more pop in his bat than most people think. Grabow would be nice too. Hendry you need to make up for the worst offseason in recent memory and get these deals done!!!!!!!!

Just what the Cubs need: two platoon outfielders with big contracts (Bradley and Fukudome).

Apparently you have been living under a rock come August and September when the team melts faster than an ice cream cone on a hot day.  The team will cool off like a lake breeze, just wait for it.

Really???  Last I saw the Cubs were .5 games out of the Division lead and 1 game back in the Wild Card standings.  Their shot at the play-offs looks great considering they are one of the hottest teams in MLB.  And while Hendry's latest off-season moves are questionable, it looks like the team is pretty well-positioned.

-Soriano is mashing in the 6th spot (and nto complaining at all!)
-Ramirez is back healthy and hitting very well
-D-Lee is as solid as ever
-Zambrano has been very good
-The bullpen is pitching well (Kevin Gregg has been awesome over the past 60 days)
-And the young guys like Hoff, Fox, Wells, Hart, etc. are all producing

If Soto, Lilly and Dempster can all get healthy and return to from by Sept. 1 they should be fresh and ready to make a run.  That is 3 All-Stars that are not in the line-up!  But the team is hot.

Tell me where i'm wrong.

If Jim Hendry wasn't such a fathead we would've signed Raul Ibanez in the off season!!!  I hope Milton Bradley, who never really was that great of a player, especially in the NL, keeps coming to bite Hendry in the butt!   Sorry Cubs, no playoffs for you AGAIN.
