    Cubs Announce 5 More Cuts

    .- The Cubs made five roster cuts on Thursday, sending Augie Ojeda, Scott Moore, Matt Camp and Bobby Scales to minor league camp, and optioning Fernando Perez to Triple-A Iowa.
    That means Reed Johnson has won the last outfield spot, and will be added to the 40-man roster, and Drawin Barney will be among the infielders.
    "First of all, everyone's got a job," manager Mike Quade said. "That's the good news."
    The Cubs spared Blake DeWitt by sending down Scales and Moore, who have outplayed him in camp offensively and defensively. Quade said he will now use DeWitt at third as well as second, after using him exclusively at second this spring.
    "I said I want to be patient with him," Quade said. "He's going to make this ballclub, and he's going to need to get better, and he will."
    Darwin Barney has moved ahead of DeWitt at second. Quade said he was "thrilled to death with the way (Jeff) Baker and Barney have played," and that it's still a competition between the two at second. Barney is hitting .359, while Baker is batting .381.

    Re: Cubs Announce 5 More Cuts

    I understand there are other factors involved, but it's a little disappointing to hear that Moore and Scales were outperforming DeWitt, but they're sticking with DeWitt anyway. Sounds like Dusty and Lou all over again.

    From the sounds of it, Darwin Barney will be at second.

    Okay, maybe Lou is the only one who deserves that, but Dusty has taken the Giants, Cubs, and Cincinnati to the playoffs.

    The Cubs hired both of them for a reason.

    If I could, I would delete the 2003 NLCS from my memory.

    I'm sure they had a reason for giving Soriano an 8-year contract at age 34 (or whatever he was). That doesn't mean it was a GOOD reason.

    Well what does have that to do with Lou or Dusty? That's a Jim Henry decision.

    My god, get the head out of the sand, quit looking back and look forward Cubs fans!
