- The Cubs have confirmed interest in Pedro Martinez and watched him work out earlier this week. Nick Carfardo said Pedro hit 94 MPH on his fastball during the work out. The reason this is so important is because the Cubs currently have a good rotation but have health and stability issues. Harden is very injury pron, Marshall is needed in the pen, and Randy Wells looks like he may be coming back down to earth. With all that the Cubs need a veteran pitcher to build up there rotation and I think Pedro is the answer.
- Bradley is not making any friends in Chicago. Not only is he slumping, he is not playing sound baseball. If he is not striking out and blaming umpires then he is giving away runs. When is it enough? Bradley is not a Cub and Hendry needs to find someone who wants to to be a Chicago Cub. The Cubs need a player like Adam Dunn (who wanted to be a Cub) or Brad Hawpe (who is a professional player. Right now, Bradley is not that type of player.
- Peavy could be out up to three months with the ankle injury he suffered. Maybe this will put the Peavy to Cubs rumor to rest!
Til next time Cub fans.
