They also have put out on the [Cubs] site that Viz will pitch at Wrigg but in a eased into situation. IE BP. So another spot given up to the pen."They", being Carrie Muskat, isn't exactly trustworthy as far as who is and is not getting a roster spot. We're talking about a guy who didn't pitch last year, so with both he and Baker, I think we'll just have to wait and see. Their pitching will make the decisions.

I think Baker breaks the rotation and Feldman goes to the pen. I know, he is an expensive bullpen guy but I believe he was brought in here as insurance anyway. If he can keep his ERA down, he could be attractive for other teams at the deadline. He should be in the range of former Cub Tom Gorzelanny.All good points, Boo.
Someone will be traded before the season starts, and I believe Marmol will be it. A lot will depend on other teams injury issues and you know the Cubs are trying to get a legit 3B prospect. Soriano and possibly Garza are good trade candidates to land even better youngsters than Marmol. Nothing would surprise me at this point.
I mean we could give him a chance immediately, do it "the Castro way", or play him in minors till half the way or whatever and then give him the chance, I'd call it "the Rizzo way".They definitely won't do it "the Castro way" because that was tied to Hendry, and you can bet your bottom dollar it will be done "the Rizzo way" so they don't get the Arb clock running for him while the Cubs are trying to field a team. All I care about is getting a damn team out there that competes.
