The problem is that the Cubs asploded (to use KC's word) in the playoffs two years running. The Russian roulette comment is very apt, but when you've scored 12 runs in your last six postseason games, you have to do something.
Keep wreves in General Talk in 2011!

You can't understate this point. It's not like the Cubs didn't make the playoffs with the NL's best record last year w/o him.


I don't even understand what you said... a double negative and a 'without', my head asplode.


It was a sarcastic comment pointing out that the Cubs were the #1 seed in the NL last year w/o Bradley. B-)


I don't doubt their winning the NL central w/ or w/o Bradley. I was just commenting on others saying they just needed him for the playoffs.

It's the postseason when we need these guys. That's what this trade and any future trade is for.


agreed, although the Cubs still need a 5th starter, if they wanna save Hardens arm by limiting his innings/start.
Bradley's 3rd year is not guaranteed, so the the deal is $5.0 mill for 2009 + $4.0 mill signing bonus, $9.0 mill for 2010 and a $2.0 mill buyout on the 2011 option if he cant meet health requirements.
Great signing.
