Marmol DFA

The Cubs designated reliever Carlos  Marmol for assignment and released third baseman Ian  Stewart, tweets Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune.  The team also selected the contract of outfielder Brian  Bogusevic, adds Sullivan.

Re: Marmol DFA 


about time.  No reason to keep a guy that has no future on the team and has absolutely no trade value anymore.  Only reason to keep him on the team was to build trade value and clearly that was not going to happen.

You know, he was actually pitching ok before Dale had him close that game in NY. Hope he has success elsewhere. He STILL has the velocity.

Well, that's one way to teach Dale not to put him into games in the 8th or 9th with a one run lead.

Now just have to move Soriano and maybe Garza and then no more ties to Hendry.

And you also would have to deal with Samardzija...and Castro...and Barney...and a bunch of bullpen arms. Other than that, sure, all set.

Soriano seems to be the symbol for the bad contracts from Hendry. Once his contract is off the books the excuses of bad Hendry contracts will be gone. Epstein is responsible for the Castro contract and will have to decide on extending Samardzija or trading him.

2007-Trading Soriano and Garza would reduce the payroll even more. Just think how poor the Cubs will look. banghead

That is the goal - they want a lower payroll until they can increase their revenue streams.

Wouldn't you rather have a bad team with a 50 million dollar payroll vs a 101 loss team with a 110 million dollar payroll ?

Re: Marmol DFA 


What kind of question is that. I want a team that is built to win for many years, not a 'all in mentality.' And since the year is half over and no team is going to take their contracts, it really doesn't matter because you are paying either way.

When you are in a rebuild why bother keeping a 110 million dollar payroll when you are tanking to get a high draft pick. Kris Bryant better be a star for throwing away 2012.

Re: Marmol DFA 


So what could our payroll look like after this year, something like under $50 million right?

Re: Marmol DFA 


Once again, you equate payroll with winning. It doesn't exist. Giants didn't have top payroll and still won. Dodgers aren't winning. Let me type this slow, the Cubs have millions of dollars to spend. They are not cashed strapped, they are being financially responsible when it comes to free agents. Something they have not done in the past 20 years.

You already have 55 million committed to 8 players with another 6 with arb (15-20 million)
then need to add 11 players
