Default Flubs looking to dump Farnsworth next...

Having rid themselves of Sammy Sosa, the Cubs are now working on dealing Kyle Farnsworth.
It's believed the Cubs tried to include a Farnsworth-for-Jorge Julio swap in the Sosa deal with the Orioles, but Baltimore wouldn't go for it, even though it was probably an upgrade for them. The Braves are one of the teams that could be interested in the hard-throwing right-hander.

Yep, Leo Mazzone will turn him into a stud like he did with the other two Cubs' castoffs last year (Juan Cruz and Alfonseca).

In what universe is "The Farns" an upgrade over Jorge Julio? That's like us shopping Neal Cotts for Octavio Dotel and saying that the A's would be better off with Cotts.

This is an odd numbered year, meaning Farnsworth will have a great year.

Look at this.

2000: 6.43 ERA
2001: 2.74
2002: 7.33
2003: 3.30
2004: 4.72

If this guy spent more time studying film and hitters and less time in the Wrigleyville bars, he could be an outstanding closer.

He's like LaTroy Hawkins. Million dollar arm, ten cent head. Neither has the mental makeup to close. They can't handle the pressure.

I think I'd rather have this guy.

Hawkins is probably the first guy to blow 9 saves and have an ERA under 3. That just shows what a terrible closer he is. He is one of the best set up men in the game. The Cubs better find a closer for his sake.

I also heard he loves the cocaine. Not good for an athlete.

But it's perfectly ok for the average citizen? I'd venture to say it's not good for anyone.

He apparently loves all of the late night Trixies that hang out at Tai's Til 4.
