I wonder if the Cubs could get anything for him in the off season?

I don't see a point in that, he is cheap and very talented and should have the inside track for a set-up role next year. unless we pull off a big trade that needs his involvement, there really is no reason to trade him.

The idea behind trading him would be the thought that he might not be healthy enough to be effective after this season. He's been fragile throughout his career and, while if healthy he can be cheap and very effective, he may or may not be healthy after this season. Trading him now would be selling high - but he should only be traded if we can get something good for him in return.

 

I wouldn't trade him just to deal him.

They haven't mentioned it's anything with his elbow or the real nitty-gritty of his shoulder and they make it sound like it's the muscles behind and below his shoulder, in the back of his shoulder, his triceps and his side. I've heard Len mention a "lat muscle," but I have no idea what a lat muscle is.

 

It's a matter of how much you believe the injury reports, I guess.

Was that before or after he took a bite out of a baseball and spit it at a hitter to intimidate him in an exhibition game?
