    What is it with the A's, Orieols, an Indians that we always seem to deal with them.

    Re: Cubs Trade Pitcher

    For a player to be named later? Quick, somebody find a pitcher with a cooler name than "Rocky Roquet!"

    Rocky Cherry. Got a cup of coffee with the big Cubs in '06 or '07, but otherwise spent a lot of time in Des Moines.

    Re: Cubs Trade Pitcher

    My all-time favorite has to be Stubby Clapp, who got some time with the Cardinals a while back.

    It's been awhile but we are overdue for the Marlins to fleece us again too. 2 of the 3 trades we've recently made with them only the Hee Seop Choi for Derek Lee trade did we get the better end of the deal while we helped stock their farm system with some decent pitchers.


    Go Cubs Go!

    He didn't even spend that much time with the I-Cubs. Just '07 and a weekend in '06.

    But I agree. We always thought that with a name like that, they ought to play some cheezy 70's porn-type guitar music when he walked up to the plate.

    My favorite: Lipso Nava. Played with the I-Cubs in the late 90's.

    Re: Cubs Trade Pitcher

    The A's are a normal trading partner. This is better than releasing Ryan harvey,Grant Johnson and Mark Pawelke the top draft picks for the cubs from 03-05

    Re: Cubs Trade Pitcher

    Why does it have to be a pitcher?

    It says "player", no?
