The Chicago Cubs have acquired 21-year old righty starting pitcher Marcelo Carreno and cash considerations from the Detroit Tigers to complete the Jeff Baker deal. Carreno pitched in 27 games (all starts) in A-ball for the Tigers this year and he was 9-8 with a 3.23 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP. Carreno has now pitched in 87 games (84 starts) in his first five years in the minors and he is 26-31 with 1 save, a 3.70 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.

    Learn from the Nationals, Marlins and Cardinals. Go with the youth. The other approaches of signing big name free agents on the decline do not work.

    The definition of insanity is making the same mistake over and over again and expecting different results. Glad to see the Cubs are trying to break out of that mistake mold. It will be rough for a while as they have to undo a lot of the damage. But when it’s done, we should have a farm system comperable to the Cardinals, Nationals, Marlins and Athletics.

    I think that is the way the Cubs are going to rebuild Farley. They will try to deal off some of the older players on the team (like Soriano) to open up P.T. for younger players starting for good this winter.
