Marmol avoids arbitration hearing

leave a comment »

The Cubs and Carlos Marmol agreed to a one year deal worth 2.12 million. Luckily they were able to avoid an arbitration hearing and met in the middle. I cant imagine the Cubs telling Marmol he isn’t worth or is as valuable than Marmol thinks he is, because in fact Chicago needs him more than anything this year.

However, the Cubs and Theriot have not come to a deal and I can’t wait for the Cubs to let Theriot know how they feel about his awful play. If they agree on anything obvisouly it will be a one year deal, especially with the Cubs number one prospect Starlin Castro ready to take over at short.

Its rumored Castro does have a shot at making the big league roster this spring, and hopefully he’ll prove how invaluable Theriot is to the Cubs.
