What are the Cubs doing?

3

Our (and FR's) own Erik discusses the Bradley-for-Silva clusterfuck over on the North Side of Chicago. I'm sure most of us were aware that Silva has one of the worst contracts in baseball, although salary relief means that the Cubs will have to pay him "only" $6m this year and $8m next year to be a marginally better than replacement-level soft-tosser. However, the most interesting thing for me was how good Tom Gorzelanny was last year (the 1K/inning stat surprised me, given he's not got the most dominant stuff) and is projected to be next year (CHONE reckons he'll be above-average). Forgetting the fact that they sold Bradley for cents on the dollar, it looks like not using Gorzellanny in the rotation next year in favour of Silva could be a real opportunity cost too. All good news for Cards fans.
