Interesting take from Jeff Passan and he hit the nail on the head when talking about the Cubs: "19. Chicago Cubs, who had every reason to gut their roster and held onto … Reed Johnson(notes)? Jeff Baker(notes)? Sean Marshall(notes)? Matt Garza(notes)? Everyone except Starlin Castro(notes)? Jim Hendry, who once negotiated a contract as he was having a stent put in his chest, should’ve at least tried what Wade did: make an attempt to steer the ship the right way in the future, even if it’s for another GM. He didn’t. And so the Cubs, too, are the worst kind of losers: the ones who won’t trade Reed Johnson. In the same vein but not nearly as bad are the …" Now, I don't think we should have traded Garza, unless he brought back more than what he cost, and I would rather keep Marshall and dump Marmol.
