Cubs still winning

Well since my last post when I called Edmonds washed up and the Cubs mediocre, they have played pretty decent ball and Edmonds has refound his hitting stroke somewhat. Also Jason Marquis pitched a beautiful game last night (but I will wait and see if he can repeat before giving him accolades). Another good thing is that Lou has seemed to learned from his mistake earlier this year leaving Soriano out in the 9th inning on defense and has been replacing him with Reed Johnson late in games.
The Cubs still need to find another starting pitcher and another reliable reliever wouldn't hurt either. Off the top of my head I have no idea who they should acquire or who is available, but the sooner they address the problems the better off the team will be.
Note to Ronny Cedeno: Learn to slide into 2nd base and not overslide it..

The best trade not made this year: At the moment the Cub's not acquiring Brian Roberts from the Orioles.


  • It's sure be nice of C.C. Sabathia were available in a trade... or possibly Maddux, although I don't know that Maddux is a playoff caliber pitcher at this stage in his career... and the Cubs single biggest need is a playoff caliber starting pitcher.
