Commentary: Maddon, the bullpen and predictions on who’ll be traded

Joe Maddon has his “circle of trust,” and it would seem that at least a few of the relievers in the circle are the ones who’ve recently struggled the most.

Kenny, Kenny, Kenny.

If Theo waits the until July waiver to fix his pen he won't need to because the Cubs will be 34 games out.

Like he did in early April, it is time for him to shuffle them off to Des Moines and bring in the next circus wagon. As I mentioned the other day to a loyal reader on these very pages, the closer isn't the issue, they are blowing leads long before he comes in the game.

I agree Happ and any pitcher in the pen is available in trade. I disagree on Russell. They are not "showcasing" him, they are bringing him back slowly since this is like his spring training. He is going nowhere. Think Descalso, Caratini, Schwarber as primary trade bait.

Don't be shocked if Theo goes out and gets another starter either if someone that can help becomes available. Hello Trevor Bauer.

Cubs fans genuinely expect them to go 162-0 every year and are stunned when they don't. 100-62 will be just fine.

You hang up first.

No you.

Dan, you ignorant slut. What in the #### are they gonna do with any of the five starters they have now? OH, WAIT! Are you saying that maybe they ship Yu to the pen as a middle reliever, like some wise, insightful columnist suggested they do almost 6 months ago?

I'll hang up and wait for your reply.
