Rumors Rolling IN..

- The Cubs released Augie Ojeda and Fernando Perez.

- Gordon Wittenmyer says the Cubs are likely to take a pass on trading Zambrano, Dempster, and Garza. On the last two I get but Zambrano?

- The Cubs will not trade Sean Marshall.

- Hendry is receiving a ton of calls about players he is not willing to move. My guess is Castro, Soto, Garza, and Barney.

- The Cubs and Kerry Wood will soon discuss what teams he will be willing to be traded to.

- Levine wonders if the Yankees would have interest in Soriano, Ramirez, and Grabow. I would love for them to take all three!

- Quade was already on a warm seat as Cubs manager but now it may have just hotter after the altercation with Dempster. Dempster is the easiest guy to get along with and yet you manage to rub him the wrong way Quade. Not Good, please bring back Ryno!

- Ivy Report stats the Rangers could have interest in Zambrano if they eat some of his salary. Rumor has it they could offer up Chris Davis and Tanner Scheppers for Big Z.

Until Next Time...

Cubs team hitting dropped to 6th
their pitching is 28th and their fielding is dead last. Pitching is still the most important, ATL is 26th in hitting but 2nd in pitching,
SF is 25th in hitting but 4th in pitching,TB is 23rd in hitting 11th in pitching even PITTSBURG is
22nd in hitting but 8th in pitching. That said i believe Cubs will be trading for pitching.
Baseball America came out with there mid season top 50. Jackson is at no. 32 and Szczur is at 48.
I also think the tradeable players are BYRD,SOTO,JOHNSON,BAKER,DEWITT and i would trade Marmol. Cubs have WOOD, CASHNER, SAMARDZIJA AND CARPENTER from the right side. And
more young guns on the way. But i would only trade Marmol in a package for a starter. He's not what he was last year. 6 blown saves and 2 loses equals 8 more wins and 8 less loses we would be tied with cincy. ( 4 games back)
