He's not good enough to be demanding a rotation spot and hes paid to much not to have one. Tough situation they have there. I wouldn't be suprised to see him come back in a Roberts/Payton trade.

This is true. But as stated before, it isnt his fault he is making that muhc.

Please, No! $16 million for the next 2 years. Was a clubhouse problem in St. Louis, and now in Chicago. Why would we want Marquis?

We really wouldnt want him.

However, if the deal was Gallagher, Pie, Cedeno and Marquis for Roberts I would do it.

Don't know if this was in the long Roberts thread, but thought it was interesting.

"Three days into spring training games, and the battle for the Cubs' two openings in the starting rotation already is heating up -- and that's just the boiling commentary between one of the pitchers and the manager.

After a so-so two innings in his debut, pitcher Jason Marquis said Saturday that if he doesn't win a spot in the rotation, he wants to ''take my services elsewhere.''

To which manager Lou Piniella snapped back, ''Well, if that's the case, he can go somewhere else. How's that?''"

I guess this drives his value down as it seems they want to get him out of town before he becomes cancerous.

About 12 hours ago this was all patched up

Piniella and Marquis spoke, they misinterpreted each other, they're both fine with each other

A guy like Marquis is the last guy I'd want around our young pitchers. The whole idea of bringing in another veteran SP is to provide stability, leadership, and serve as almost a 2nd pitching coach for the young guys, isn't it? Marquis has not shown any of those qualities, IMO. If the Cubs say that they won't take Payton unless we take Marquis, then I'd rather keep Payton. At least he's only signed for this year, and for less money. In fact, rumor has it that we could trade Payton to the White Sox for Uribe, who could be our temporary answer at shortsop.

In another Cubs related note, Soriano has broken his middle finger. They say he's only going to miss 5 days, but this could mean they would be less likely to want to trade Murton but more interested in BRob, because if Sori's hitting is affected they will have an even greater need for alead off hitter.

Agreed. If we're taking on Marquis' horrendous contract, Pie, Gallagher, and Ceda/Veal have to be included in the package.
