    My money is either on the Cubs eating his salary and releasing him or him developing a mysterious and unnamed injury (code: we want to send him down but can’t) that will last until he starts pitching better.

    I hope the Cubs make a decision based on baseball factors and not financial ones. Yeah, you’d like your 12 million dollar pitcher to take his turn every fifth day, but if the team has any desire to be even faux-contenders, they can’t send a guy likely to be good for 4 innings and 6 earned runs out to the mound 30 times.

    if Quade went all “Ozzie Guillen” after the performance, and said how shitty he wouldn’t do us any good…I know we Cub fans would all like for them to pull the plug on Silva, but they have to keep their poker faces on…now that being said, if he’s in the rotation ahead of Wells..thats ridiculous..

    Silva is a waste of space! The Cubs got more than they thought they would out of Silva last year! Cut your losses……get rid of him and let a younger guy take his roster spot at a minimum salary and let him develop! I really like what I see out of Marcos Mateo! He had a great winter and would help the bullpen much more than Silva ever would!
