    Howry Back with Cubs?

    Nothing official from the Cubs, but Bob and Len said that it had been reported that he had been signed today. Just let go by the Diamondbacks.

    edit. Now confirmed by CSN. Will join the team on Friday.

    edit again. Right after that was announced, Len said the Cubs have denied it.

    Re: Howrie Back with Cubs?

    Comcast had a tweet about it. He'll join the team in Texas this week. I suppose if we are going to be bad, we might as well get worse with him back on the staff.

    Re: Howry Back with Cubs?

    Gross. Dusty's parting gift in 2006 was murdering Howry and Eyre making them pitch every day even despite the Cubs being 25 games under .500. Surprisingly both of them were awful in 2007.

    Gorzy is making a strong case to stay in the rotation tonight. I wonder who they will pull when Z is ready. I hope they don't get cute and pull Wells out. The Cubs have done stupider things, like move Z to the pen in the first place.

    Re: Howry Back with Cubs?

    Gotta figure out how to score more runs first.
    If DLee and Aram dont turn it around...nothing else really matters.

    Those two are the key. If they get going, we're in good shape. If not, we have problems.

    Nice sliding catch there by Marlon Byrd, too. I really like that guy.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    He was released by the worst bullpen in all of baseball.

    And Gorzy takes a liner off his pitching arm. Rotation spot may have just opened up. Hopefully he is OK. He's been another of Hendry's successful reclamation projects.

    Gorzy has pitched well but I thought he be replaced by Big Z when he comes back

    Re: Howry Back with Cubs?

    The smart money is on him. The only reason not to do it is b/c you already have two lefties down there with Marshall and (gulp) Grabow. As amazing as it sounds you can't screw with Carlos Silva right now. It's hard to believe I just wrote that.

    Re: Howry Back with Cubs?

    I still dont understand the Howry signing.He's looked maybe even worse than his stats show in the games I've seen of him this year. 90 mph straight fastballs nonstop.Just like he was when he was with us a few years ago.

    BTW....this Castro kid is kinda good.
