WTH? I know they wanted to deal Haren, but they couldn't do better than that?
Seems like a salary trade to me.
As the Cubs improve, and with the Stros out of the Central, next season will be tougher for the Reds.
Yeah, I don't get it, Marmol makes like $10M, I thought the whole point of trading Haren and Santana was saving up enough to pay Greinke and keep Hunter.

Angels freeing up $$$ to sign Greinke?

Nice move for Cubs.
The two sides haven't agreed to a trade, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. The Cubs did ask Marmol if he would waive his no-trade clause to go to the Halos, but the Angels are still speaking with other clubs

Marmol never had the game's best control, and he seems to have less every year. I think that at this point, he's a liability in the pen. 7.3 walks per nine innings last year. 6 for his career, even, and he just turned 30. Arredondo was at 5, and I don't really want him back.
