It's gonna be a long season for my Cubbies. The only question is who we're trading first, if Garza has any trade value and if anyone will take Soriano's contract?
Though to end this post on an optimistic note. Our boy Samardzija looked great against the Bucs.
Garza's value fell off a cliff with his arm issues at the end of last season, and now he isn't expected to be back with the team until the beginning of May. Unless he comes back and he's pitching like a moon monster in May and June, I don't think the Cubs will move him.
As for Soriano, he isn't going anywhere
unless the Cubs eat probably two-thirds of the $36 million still owed to him. His full no-trade protection throws another wrench into the works, because he does not
want to leave Chicago.
