The WAR article and Q&A with Derek Johnson are particularly click-worthy among today's links.

From Cubs Den

  • Here's a Q&A with ESPN Chicago's Jon Greenberg. He talks about fan apathy, next year's expectations, and Tom Ricketts' regrets.
  • The Cubs are among the teams chasing a Cuban pitcher who defected earlier this year.
  • Here's to making dollars and cents of WAR.
  • It is, apparently, Q&A day. This one is with Derek Johnson, the Cubs minor league pitching coordinator.


  • Carlos Marmol won't get (m)any more save chances, but he'll still pitch in late relief.
  • Dale Sveum says closing games is a funny business.
  • Starlin Castro is the only player to start every game. He shouldn't have started every game.


  • Jeff Samardzija gave the team a much needed long outing by a starting pitcher.
  • Carlos Marmol's, ahem, issues have given Dale Sveum a quandry.
