    Cubs Don't swing at the slider

    Cubs trade Marmol to L.A. for Guerrier - Chicago Cubs Blog - ESPN Chicago

    Marmol sent to the Dodgers for another DFA candidate.

    Kind of a puzzling move. Might as well have just released him.

    The Cubs also give up $209,700 in international bonus cap space to the Dodgers. So as long as Marmol stays in AAA, I say that's well worth taking on the $500k difference between Marmol's and Guerrier's salaries.

    Guerrier being Guerrier.

    Comes in, gives up a double to the first guy he faces, then two more base hits before getting yanked from the inning.

    Good fucking riddance.
