Latest On Lee, Lilly & Nady Trades

By bullpenbrian at 07.12.2010 Leave a comment.

Tough first half of the season.
11 games below .500…9.5 back of the division lead.
This isn’t the ‘Way of Life’ Tom Ricketts is talking about, right?

Besdies Zambrano’s fit-throwing, did any Cubs fans anticipated this…
an offense that doesn’t score, and a soon-to-be fire sale in mid-July?

Whoever thought Carlos Silva would be this good, or Aramis this bad?
And what on earth has happened to Derrek Lee and Randy Wells?

Then there’s Marlon Byrd the All Star…Soriano leading the lineup from the six-hole, and the breakout performance of Tyler Colvin.
Weird, weird and weird.

Things, however, will get interesting again following the break.
I’m not talking about a second half resurgence. That’s simply Not.Gonna.Happen.
Rather, the Cubs will embark on a selling spree that will reshape the roster for years to come.

Latest rumors I’m hearing:

D-Lee to the Angles.
Ted Lilly to New York.
Xavier Nady to Texas.
Theriot, Fontenot and Fukudome are all on the block, too.

Never would have thought it, but the second half of the season might be tougher to watch than the first.
If the trades pan out, however, next July could be a real treat!
