Free agent update: Outfielders Doug Glanville, Troy O'Leary and Tom Goodwin have each filed for free agency.

Glanville, acquired from the Texas Rangers July 30, batted .235 in 28 games with the Cubs and delivered a key RBI triple in the 11th inning of Game 3 of the National League Championship Series.

O'Leary hit .218 in 93 games with the Cubs while Goodwin batted .287 in 87 games and led the team with 19 stolen bases.

Other Cubs eligible for free agency include pitchers Antonio Alfonseca, Shawn Estes and Dave Veres, outfielder Kenny Lofton and infielder Tony Womack.

The Cubs have an option on pitchers Matt Clement and Mark Guthrie, and there is a mutual option with second baseman Mark Grudzielanek.

We either make ourselves happy or miserable.

The amount of work is the same.

And Cubs fans around the country are celebrating. :-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I would think they could spend their money better elsewhere than getting Oswalt. Not to say he wouldn't be a welcome addition but the starting rotation isn't exactly an area they need help. I'd rather see them get Urbina or some other closer/set-up man, plus the Pudge rumors are starting again. Even if he doesn't produce big numbers he's shown that his mere presence in a clubhouse can be a huge asset, oh yeah and he's not too bad of a catcher either.
