GLENDALE, Ariz. — This isn't a gimmick and Zach Duke hasn't reinvented himself.
While the focus has been on Jon Lester's free-agency tour and the overall pitching market, the Cubs are still trying to figure out what they have in Travis Wood.
The Cincinnati Reds announced they released Carlos Marmol after signing the former Cubs pitcher to a minor-league deal back in May.
The Cubs are going to be really good in the future. Just ask them. It might be next season. It could be the year after that. And just wait until the new TV deal finally kicks in.
