SportsTalk Live: Should the Cubs trade Marmol?
Tue, 5 Mar 2013|
The SportsTalk Live panel looks at whether the Cubs should -- and can -- trade closer Carlos Marmol - 3/5
Not only our deals is difficult to make. In spring training anyway it's a very rare time that you pull off a trade and -- it and -- consequence at all but. He's up he's up. Flawed closer there's a lot of teams that are willing to roll the dice on what they have or maybe a different option than to take a guy like this. Know why I don't understand why the Tigers would I mean that doesn't seem. And is there all and they're trying to win a world they are a desperate situation were close they are good day he is not they have Carlos Marmol last year we sought in the playoffs. And -- exactly and know that -- still looking for -- job is not quite as a norm are actually my arm wasn't as annoying him but I get your point yeah restaurants like -- I would gain a lot of their waited -- to -- including my old rumor right with the Tigers is that what they need village did there was what is Barney last year to the Tigers -- blue -- up that Garza when you're gonna hear it and this is what the Cubs are right now -- you know I mean does that every time a team out there hasn't need. The Cubs are going to be rumored to be in talks to them into February trade rumors on -- on the singer out Soriano he couldn't debt. Anyway -- that's gonna happen that's what the years about trying to build up these guys so that they can sell them off for prospects and try to win in twenty. As a fan not as -- guys have had no problem with that but if they wake up July 15 and their two games out of the wildcard. There it if they have a responsibility to fans to try and get there. It depends I did this story last weekend. You you can't answer that. If they decide if they say everything's falling right for us and we're two games out everything has gone right and we're two games out and were around 500. You watch they'll blow it up if they say. We've had some bad breaks and we're still only two games out we got some guys coming back and maybe we can -- at the deadline we we can be better than the rest of the way. Then you might -- mad and not blow it up but they're gonna lean toward blown it up no matter what we we already know that. And I think on that point I think when it comes to the trades right now -- the interesting wrinkle here is Matt -- help because. We've seen this movie before with cub pitchers and if it's the case that. Garza comes back in May and really pitches well that maybe they're able to eventually get the value that they were hoping to get. Last year when he got her with a triceps injury Saint Louis but if he does not come back. The health level that came -- acquired them that talent they thought they were gonna get. You're gonna have to try to find that elsewhere let's say Carlos Marmol is gonna bring it to you when you're gonna need other guys to trade. To get some pro players in here plus.
