Cubs Notes: Week in Transactions

Over the last week the Cubs have made a few transactions, here they are and my takes on them.
The Cubs activated Scott Williamson and brought up Geovany Soto while sending Tony Womack and David Aardsma back to AAA. Aardsma went down because the Cubs needed to activate Williamson and he was just unlucky to have options left. I think the Cubs should just cut their loses with Scott Williamson as he has not been a shadow of his former self since joining the Cubs last season and release him.
The Cubs designated Tony Womack for assignment the other day and activated Angel Pagan and also sent Geovany Soto back to AAA. This might have been a little early to bring back Pagan, but he can't be any worse than Womack or Mabry off the bench. Soto going back down was very expected as soon as Barrett came off suspension.
Also it looks like Glendon Rusch is going to be activated soon and with that I expect that Angel Guzman will go back to the minors. I also think the Cubs might benefit in bring Wuertz back up again (showing nice command in minors) and maybe sending down Novoa.
