I heard this guy is rockin in AAA. Besides the fact that he is an ex cub, what is stopping us from giving him a shot this year. We definitely could use him somewhere on the staff whether it be in the bullpen or as a starter. I hate the cubs as much as the next guy, but it seems to be that they will at least give some of their young pitchers a shot (Cruz, Zambrano, Prior). We on the other hand seem to leave our staff alone, even though they struggle continually.

The season's going down the tubes, so there's really no point in rushing someone to the majors. Notice how Cruz and Zambrano SUCK, so why follow the Cubs in terms of how to handle a pitching staff.

All I know about pitching is how to avoid oncoming fastballs.

2 questions......... does the minor leaguers play while the strike is on......... either way brooks have to sit b/c of his prior mlb time.

Minor Leaguers NOT a part of the 40 man roster can still play. Also, Brooks is not a part of the 40 man roster, so he can still picth.

Brooks has more than 3 years MLB service time. He is an MLBPA member for life, I believe.

You would be correct.
