Any idea what's holding the Cubs from moving him along?

In any event, it seems like he's ready to take a crack at the bullpen in 2011 - if he's still on the Cubs, that is.
Would love to hear additional thoughts on Beliveau.

Yeah, he was going to be on the "taxi squad" from the get-go (limited outings), but he was pulled onto Team USA for the Pan Am games. As you note, he only recently got to the AFL, and I would expect his outings to be limited.
Only reason I ask is I see he just got invited to the, hitting heavy, AFL. He's only had 1 outing where he threw a scoreless inning.

If Samardzija and Cashner are both in the rotation, that would help his cause. Ditto if Woody retires.
If he doesn't go to the Red Sox, I think he could be in the bullpen next year, but with Marshall and Russell being there, I'm not sure there will be a spot for him unless someone else is moved.
