MIlton Bradley:
He will be gone, No way would he accepted back by the players or fans.

Kevin Gregg:
Just think about how close the wild card deficit would be if he would have blown only half the games he had a chance to save or win.

Alfonso Soriano:
A little to zero chance that he would be dealt but with his dwindling offense and limited defense this sissy is just painful to watch.

Aaron Miles:
Probably the worst hitter in baseball since Mario Mendoza.

Mike Fontenot::
Second base was his to loose and he BLEW IT!! A good player in 2007 and 2008 and he
hit .230 when we needed him this year.

Kouske Fukudome:
I 'll probably catch some grief for this one. Although he is a soid defender (Especially in RF) with good all around insticts, his hitting is way too inconsistent to be a force at the major league level. He needs to hit at the top of the line up to be some what productive at best. Not a middle o ...

Where should I start, there is a lot:

1) Where was Baker when he was traded to the Cubs, oh I know rotting on the bench but Pinella has to play the lefty bum Mike Fontenot.

2) Milton Bradley was hitting close to .400 batting second and when the Cubs still have a chance he bats him 5th and had trouble getting on base and driving in runs.

3) Playing Alfonso Soriano even when he was injured and not playing younger guys like Fox and Hoffpauir who are healthy and will play as good as defense as Soriano could or even better.

4) When the Cubs will only 5.5 games out of the wild card and down by 1 run he brings in rookies who are nervous and had trouble throwing strikes and getting outs.

5) Kept going with Gregg as closer even when he was having trouble getting the last 3 outs of the game.

6) Only letting the starting pitchers pitch around 100 pitches even when they are pitching one hell of a game.

6) Letting the relief pitchers like M ...

The trades will be from the offseason and this year:

1) Cubs traded Jose Ascaino, Kevin Hart and a prospect for Jonh Grabow and Tom Gorzelanny of the Pirates
Verdict: I say the Cubs win by a pretty good amount because Gorzelanny and Grabow come in and get outs while Ascaino and Hart are struggling with the Pirates.

2) Cubs traded a prospect for Jeff Baker of the Rockies.
Verdict: I say the Cubs win big because Baker is hitting the crap out of the ball and the Rockies got a player who is 24 and only in Single A.

3) Cubs traded Ryan Freel for a PTBNL of the Royals.
Verdict: I say the Cubs win because the Cubs got a player in return when he was going to be release and the Royals eventually released Freel.

4) The Cubs traded Joey Gathright for Ryan Freel of the Orioles.
Verdict: The Cubs lose because Ryan Freel was traded to the Royals and they lost a good pinch runner off the bench.

5) The Cubs Traded Rich Hill for a PTBNL ...

Worth, ILL - A young boy who suffers from various life-threatening illnesses recently had his wish granted to meet Chicago Cubs player Aramis Ramirez. The wish was made possible with the help of national charity Kids Wish Network.

Nicholas, who is 11-years-old, was born with Hydrocephalus, a cleft lip and palate, and Crouzan Syndrome, which results in the premature fusion of certain bones in the skull. He has had seven surgeries in his short life, including brain surgery, a bone graft and various reconstructive surgeries to help repair the malformations in his face caused by his illnesses. He will soon undergo another surgery, which will be his most extensive surgery to date, in which surgeons will work to make his face appear more symmetrical.

A Kids Wish Network Wish Referral Specialist contacted Gina, Nicholas' mom, and sent an application for a wish out to their home. Once the application was completed, Wish Coordinator Vanessa and Wish Funding Specialist Do ...
