Cubs no-hit streak contest; Standings (3 games left)

BARNEY GOLD GLOVE

Darwin Barney broke up the no-hitter against Kershaw in the first inning….hahaha, bet you never thought you would see that sentence.  Only a handful of contestants remain as there are only nine total points remaining, time to get creative with your picks guys, and girls.  @chicagosports91 extended his lead to three points last night, but it still up for grabs, get your picks in for today’s afternoon affair.  Good luck, and go Cubs!

no hit standings 8-28

More news! Cubs trade Marmol to Dodgers

Fast and Furious 11…  sorry.  The Cubs have announced, well I think the Dodgers actually announced it, but anyway the Cubs have traded Carlos Marmol to the Dodgers along with international bonus money (4th slot) for relief pitcher Matt Guerrier.  Clearly the Cubs had to throw money into this deal or the Dodgers would have never taken it considering they were dealing with zero leverage here.  I assume that the money the Cubs just got from the Orioles in the Scott Feldman trade went to the Dodgers or at least made the money even for the Cubs so they wouldn’t feel so bad about losing it.  Guerrier is not going to improve this team down the road, but he helps the Cubs get rid of Marmol and his money which is never a bad thing.  Pretty impressive that Jed and Theo could move Marmol in this situation, maybe he figures it out, he wasn’t going to do so here.
