Who Stays, Who Goes
With Kerry Wood, Nomar Garciaparra and Scott Williamson set to be activated on Friday, the Cubs will need shed three players from the current roster. Sergio Mitre is the number one obvious choice. Hell. They should have traded him right after his one great start. Alas...
The next option seems to be a tossup between Michael Wuertz and Roberto Novoa. However, when Ryan Dempster decided to go all "Aerosmith" last night, Novoa was seen warming up in the bullpen. That suggests that Novoa will stay put.
The last guy to go sure seems to be Ronny Cedeno. That makes sense because the team doesn't need three shortstops and Cedeno needs to play every day.
It's too bad that it won't be the 12th pitcher. Mike Remlinger needs to be given a gold watch and told to go away. And this team needs more offensive options off the bench.
