Questions: Floyd, Kendall, Gallagher

Thank you again in advance for your answers!

  1.  Gallagher seemed to be absolutely wiping out AAA; yet every time he gets to the bigs he has melted down.  Last night-- 4 ER's in less than 1 IP??  Is he for real or is he just a tease?  I didn't get to see the game.  Are his pitches any good?  What is the deal with this guy?
  2.  Why does everyone go on and on about how bad Kendall is?  His OBP has climbed to over .400.  Sure, he doesn't have a whole lot of power, but the guy is a catcher.  Hitting for average and getting on base is really not all that bad in terms of production from a catcher.  Remember, we had Damien Miller for a while who couldn't pay to get on base.  Am I missing something here?  I think we got probably the best trade in baseball by acquiring him from the A's for essentially nothing.
  3.  Anyone hear anything about Shannon Stewart?  I really wish he would come so we would have some sort of anchor in RF.
  4.  Why is Cliff Floyd not playing now with the power hitters like Soriano and Ramirez out?  I would think it's even more important for him to be playing every day right now during this stretch.  Is he hurt again?
  5.  Is our pitching staff set for the rest of the year?  I am assuming it just about is.  No words on any trades regarding pitchers who have cleared waivers?  I was hoping the Cubbies would make some sort of move sort of like how the Yankees went after Chacon a few years back.
  6.  Any word on Wood being our closer? I think a 7th-8th-9th inning combo of Marmol, Howry, Wood would be amazing.  Use Dempster for middle relief.  The guy is just not a reliable closer.
