Forecast Calls For Minor League Fogg

Just picked up word that the Rocks pull off a blockbuster move and sign Josh Fogg to a minor league deal. I guess the market for dragon slayers was pretty dry. Meanwhile the D-Bags pick up Jon Garland. I think our division just got tougher.

Am I glad we signed Fogg? Yes - I like the dude as a player/gum gnasher and maybe he can make the team in a long reliever role. Unlike last year when I thought we should've resigned Fogg, we seem pretty solid in the end of the rotation department. But, I guess you can never be too sure. Am I excited about this signing? Not really. Any excitement that I do have is probably more sentimental than anything. Still, here's to a comeback year for the Dragon Slayer!

I agree with this trade.......

Vizco for Marquis? Big thumbs up O'Dowd. The papers make it sound like a done deal, which is fairly shocking. Marquis is pretty scrubby by Cubs' standards, but he'll definitely help the Rocks. In addition to being a totally mediocre major league pitcher (that's a complement on this team), the dude can swing the bat too. I hope the bullpen can survive missing all of those clutch performances from Vizciano.
