Fangraphs: What The Cubs Must Do


I like how this author has the balls to suggest that the Cubs trade Carlos Marmol. It's an awesome idea, only if the Cubs are able to get a huge prospect in return. "Like Carlos Zambrano, I have reached my boiling point with the Cubs organization. There have been worse seasons than this one, but rarely has one seemed this disappointing."

What The Fukudome Is Going On ?

Japanese team used Dice-K's posting fee for plush potties


Since things have gotten a little heated on the site the last couple of days, I thought everyone could use a good laugh. Apparently, the Seibu Lions used much of the $51 million posting fee they received from the Red Sox to improve their stadium, once one of the worst in Japan. Now they have some of the nicest bathrooms in the country and apparently that is important in Japan. Wonder what they think of the bathrooms at Wrigley when Japanese tourists come to see Fukudome? Say, to raise money to renovate Wrigley, who do you propose the Cubs "post" to a Japanese team?

Ryan Braun bonds with the Cubs


Ryan Braun made a horrifying discovery during his first all-star clubhouse experience. "It turns out that all the Cubs are kind of nice guys," the Brewers leftfielder told me this afternoon. "That's unfortunate. I thought it would be easy to dislike them." Braun has learned you can want to kick somebody's butt on the field but still shoot the breeze with them in the all-star atmosphere. First-timers, such as Braun and Brewers rightfielder Corey Hart, often are surprised at how cordial even the biggest stars in the league can be. "At first, it's kind of overwhelming," said Hart. "Then, you realize how friendly the guys are. I got to talk to (Cubs outfielder Kosuke) Fukudome and he's a good guy. Kind of quiet, but a good guy.
