Problem Bradley for Problem Silva

. Friday, December 18, 2009

The Cubs recently signed Venezuelan star Carlos Silva, made famous for his roll as El Kendro Powers in the Spanish language adaption of "Eastbound and Down"

Well, we finally did it. We traded Milton Bradley for Carlos past-his-prime-coming-off-of-an-8.60-E.R.A.-season Silva. Looking at his career stats, it is dumbfounding why anyone would make this move. 4.72 E.R.A. for his career, hasn't had a winning record since 2005 (and that was 9-8), and pitched 30 innings last year. The only thing he has in common with the Cubs staff is his post-season skills: 0-1, 10.60 E.R.A., lasting 5.0 innings. On top of it all, we won't even clear payroll room, as he is due $25 million over the next two years.

Sigh.

This is what happens when you really hate someone and are willing to show it by any means necessary. It's like trying to get back at your ex-girlfriend, but end up with a lifetime filled with syphilis. Take me out to the ballgame, buy me some penicillin and cracker jacks.

Hi Steve!

Syphilis notwithstanding, the real bitch is you just know Bradley is going to have some filthy numbers in Seattle.

while that may be true, i still hate the d-bag. i have no doubt that he can perform in a situation where no one cares.
