Apparently Matt Murton CAN Be Traded

murton.traded.jpgContrary to what I believed, it's becoming very apparent that the Cubs can, and probably will, trade OF Matt Murton. I'm going to chalk this up to the Cubs not correctly using their resources.....again, much like the batting order, much like their farm system....you get the picture. I hope Murton gets traded to an American League team where he can play left field every day and become a consistent contributor.  I'm now going to bite my tongue and wait to see what happens.....

In other Cubs news.....Carlos Zambrano had his final outing of the Spring and it was about what you'd expect in the final outing of the Spring (4 IP, 4 runs, 5 K's). At this point everyone is pretty tired of being in Arizona. Big Z sounds like he's ready to go for Opening Day, so let's hope that he can keep his emotions in check on Monday (if they play)......Felix Pie kept up his torrid hitting with three more hits and two steals yesterday. Keep in mind that Pie carried a lot of his minor league teams to titles and if he begins to get his confidence up, the sky could be the limit for him. I'm not saying he's going to be the NL MVP but he could end up being a major contributor offensively......Closer Kerry Wood had his longest outing of the Spring as he went 1.2 innings yesterday and didn't give up any runs while striking out two. Wood still hasn't walked a batter this Spring......Carlos Marmol had control issues again as he walked two batters and gave up a run in his 1.1 innings of work.......Carmen Pignatiello apparently lost his spot on the team to Sean Marshall (?) but continued to put up zeroes as he closed out the Cubs victory with another scoreless inning......The Chicago Tribune had an article about how Lou Piniella let IF Mike Fontenot know he made the team and it seems like Fontenot was as surprised as I was......The Cubs play on WGN today at 2:05 CT if you are off today "sick".
