    Twitter rumor...Heath Bell to the Cubs?

    THIS IS JUST A TWITTER RUMOR AS OF RIGHT NOW


    The Monty Show (sportingnewsradio.com, SIRIUS 127) is reporting that the cubs are close to a deal for Heath Bell.

    No report on if this truly close to being finalized right now and no report on who the cubs would be giving up? Speculation from Randy Wells to Jake Fox to Carlos Marmol.

    He'd be a nice fit for their pen. Death on righties, and definitely better than B.B. Marmol.

    closers come and go each season. i would think with the way randy wells has pitched he could be part of a bigger package than a rod beck clone.

    Rumors are that it might be Marmol for Bell.

    I hope it isn't the only way Marmol had better be in a deal to the Padres is for Peavy. Can we trade Gregg and Fox for him?

    He may walk some people but he also strikes out a bunch of people as well

    Heck no!!! If fox is gone the already bad offense gets even worse. If I am an AL team that is just about ready to contend I would seriously look at Jake Fox. Young, cheap and can absolutely RAKE

    I would do Gregg for Bell straight up or Wells for Bell but not Fox plus Gregg/Wells.

    Re: Twitter rumor...Heath Bell to the Cubs?

    I would not want to see Wells traded. He is arguably the Cubs best pitcher right now.

    As for Marmol, I would make that deal in a second.

    Trade him at his highest value though. I don't see him doing this the rest of the year.

    As would I..... I know he is hurt and that the money is an issue but some sort of wells, gregg and either hoff or fox for peavy and bell would be good. Other prospects would probably have to be involved as well

    When was this? Every reliever Lou sent out there gave up a run on Saturday.
