SEAN MARSHALL IS NOT CY YOUNG...or Babe Ruth
Posted 02 July 2012 - 08:28 AM
One of the problems with Cub fans(and I am one of them and will admit to being guilty of this sometimes) is we tend to over-value and get way too attached to players(remember Mark DeRosa?) This can be the only explanation for fans still upset that we traded Marshall away?
Travis Wood's recent stretch is NOT the only reason why I am making this point...the level that Wood has been pitching at is not sustainable...but his ceiling is a good number 3 starter in the bigs, and his floor.....if he washes out as a starter after a couple years...would be as a lefty set-up man.
More than likely, Travis Wood is a guy who will be a starter for awhile...Sean Marshall is a 30 year old reliever.
let him go.....

Also, you're right: Nobody seems to be up-in-arms about DeRosa anymore, since Archer helped net us Garza.

I think that has a little more to do with the amount of time that has passed and Hendry being gone.
