    The Cubs continue to shoot themselves in the foot. They basically traded Ronny Cedeno and Felix Pie for Aaron Heilman. Honestly, what the hell?

    That’s a good thing, Jack. I guess that proves that a complete moron can’t be a GM of a large market team. Who would of thought. Seth Frank could run the Cubs with that much money.

    Perfect example of a team making moves just for the sake of making moves.

  4. Jack Says:

    Oh, don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. And as far as making moves just for the sake of making moves, the Cubs are/were kind of handcuffed by having guys like Pie, Hill and Cedeno without option years remaining, but if you’re telling me that Pie and Cedeno can only bring in an essentially cast-off reliever from what was one of the worst middle-relief corps in baseball, this is just the sort of management that can result in, say, a 100 year absence from the world series, for example.

    I mean, can you imagine if somebody had suggested trading Felix Pie for Aaron Heilman last year? Wow.
