    He wanted to be a Cub, it's that simple.

      Let us talk about 1 of the 2 good things about the Cubs in Carlos Marmol. He struck out 138 guys in 77.2 innings. His BAA .154 and while his BABIP was an outrageous .325

      I love Carlos Marmol and his giant dumbo ears.

      Thanks to BoneKrusher Credit and Rep to him for the sig.

        His control is still godawful, but he can get away with it because he just broke the K/9 record.

        • Yeah Wood is a moron if he really thinks he has a chance to win the closers job. As Brodeur said he just wanted to be a Cub plain and simple. Jenks is going to have a big year for Boston I think anyway though.

          • Yanks sign Pedro Feliciano to 2 years/9 million.

            • Wow. That's way more than I thought he'd get. He has major trouble with RH batters so for a LOOGY that's an overpay.

                That's basically what they paid Damaso over three years, two offseasons ago. Its pocket change for us if he can do his job effectively and he should.

                • Correct it's pocket change but you were better off getting Jenks at $13 million over 2 years then. Feliciano has been getting worse and worse versus righties as he gets older.

                      I don't think we were ever considering Jenks. We needed a lefty. We'll do the same thing we do every year. Go in with Mo, a lefty, and bunch of farm guys. See what works out and if we need a righty later in the season, trade for one for a no name in a salary dump. I could never see Jenks as a Yankee anyway. He'd have to shave the blonde pubic hair on his face.

                          And if we're as stupid as the Mets and use him in those situations, then shame on us.

                            I'm just saying you were better off getting a LOOGY out of your farm system than giving Feliciano 2 years at that price.

                              Well that's Jerry Manuel for you. Don't worry he had a good gut feeling in most of those situations.

                                We really don't have any. We claimed some guy from San Diego last year, but I know nothing about him. We pay for the lefties because they're lefty. We have plenty of righty options especially if you consider 90% of the righty starters in our system have zero shot for ever starting for us.
