Cubs make some cuts

The Cubs made some cuts today and only 1 of them was a surprise for me. The Cubs sent down Roberto Novoa and to me that is a major disappointment. Now the trade for Farnsworth is going to produce nothing productive for us this season. Clarence Flowers and Scott Moore the other two players acquired in the trade are considered non-prospects and now that Novoa in minors we have nothing to show for trade.
The other players sent down today are all guys that really didn’t have much of a chance to make the team: David Crouthers, Raul Valdez, Adam Greenberg, Jose Reyes and Robinson Cancel.

Out of those guys Raul Valdez and Adam Greenberg are the only 2 guys I think might be major league material. Valdez had a hand injury from winter league that never let him compete and Greenberg is at least a year away from being able to be a 4th-5th OF in the majors.
