Carlos Pena's name still hasn't shown up on the waiver wire, those clubs report. But teams that have spoken with the Cubs say they seem no more interested in moving Pena now than they were in July, unless they get something back that makes it worth their while. We were told by one source with numerous friends on the Cubs: "That's a bad clubhouse. And he's one of the few guys holding it together."

So that would explain the Cubs reluctance to get rid of Pena but also something more troubling. Is the lack of team chemistry from losing? Quade? Any other reasons? How worried should we be (for the future, this year is obviously over)? Jayson Stark column at ESPN.com
