Cubs Offseason Moves to Date!!!

Let's take a look at our offseason moves thus far.

 

 

Cubs signed John Grabow to a 2yr/7.5 Million dollar deal.

Cubs traded Jake Fox and Aaron Miles to the A's for Jeff Gray and two minor-leaguers.

Cubs let Rich Harden walk.

Cubs traded Milton Bradley for Carlos Silva and 9 Million Dollars.

Several sources have us interested in Marlon Byrd and Scott Podsednik.

 

My take on it all....

As I see it we replaced Rich Harden with Carlos Silva. DOWNGRADE

Were gonna replace Bradley with Byrd or Pods. A wash at best!

We paid the A's to take on  another mistake signing and gave them a really nice bench bat to boot for a bunch of meaningless prospects.

Were gonna have to give a bad SS a raise to somewhere around 2-3 million. For what he is talent wise, the league minimum was alright. Why not go get a Tejada or someone similar until Castro is ready? Hell even Scutaro would have been better and wouldn't have cost much more.

 

We still need a  lot of help in the pen!

 

Ted Lilly may not be ready for opening day. We have Gorzo/Marshall who are at best #5 starters. Silva is no where near as good as either one of them. We don't know what were getting from Wells.

 

We have no bench!

 

Our core players have an injury history the size of Mt. Rushmore.

 

Can someone please tell me exactly what Jim Hendry and the Cubs are doing but getting worse by the day?

 

Sorry to be Captain Negative but I'm trying to make sense of this mess.
