There is rumor that the Angles may look into Marmol with Madson out on the DL at the start of the season.What could we possibly see the Cubs get in return? They had Dan Haren--but they balked at him....I'd be curious, but pretty doubtful. Marmol may piss alot of us off, he may give many heart problems, and he leaves plenty of us shaking heads......but the dude isnt worthless.
It would have been a much better choice to have received Haren in the deal for "Curious George", and signed Matt Lindstrom for the pen to be our closer. He would be a much better option, on paper, than some Japanese 10 million dollar crap shot. Not to mention more cost effective.
Blowden can fall off the baseball world's, face of the Earth, and no one could tell the difference.
The money to gain Valverde could have come from the "cost savings" of signing Lindstrom and NOT signing Feldman and some Japanese dynamo and some other injured asian I choose to forget.
But garbage, the injured, and international "dynamos" will surely peak our interest this coming season, rather than a contending team.
I hope that the Japanaese dynamo works out. But I seriously doubt he was worth the money spent on him.
We already have Wildman Marmol why bring in another oneUnfortunately, Marmol's wildness can be attributed to the fact that he's a retard.
