MLB Network’s Peter Gammons knows Pat Gillick well and believes the longtime baseball executive would have serious interest in joining the Cubs.
In his last 1.1 innings pitched, Carlos Marmol has given up three hits, five walks and seven earned runs on his way to blowing to saves. And as the trading deadline approaches, he recent struggles may not have much of an impact on his trade value.
At this point in the season, it’s pretty clear that the Chicago Cubs aren’t going to be competing the NL Central. But, in preparing to compete in the division over the next few season, the team needs to evaluate which players can be traded for prospects.

Despite playing better as of late, it’s unlikely that the Chicago Cubs will be able to compete for a playoff spot. As the team soon shifts its focus to improving for the future, Carlos Pena might hear his named mentioned in potential trades.

The Chicago Cubs’ season is quickly starting to fall apart. And as it does, the likelihood that general manager Jim Hendry will be shown the door at the end of the season increases. But the problems with the team aren’t necessarily all his fault.

After sweeping the Boston Red Sox, the Chicago White Sox will return home with a 10-game homestand. They’re coming back to U.S. Cellular Field with a little more hope than they left with, and with a little less pressure on the players’ shoulders.

Baseball analyst Peter Gammons says he thinks the White Sox have reached a turning point, and should be given credit for their pitching.
It’s has been a tough season so far for the White Sox and their fans. Both thought the team would have a good chance to win the division and make a deep run into the playoffs, but through 32 games Chicago is stuck in last place.
