I like this move. Good numbers at Wrigley IIRC and not as old as I thought he was.

On the same day MLBTR had a piece about Pat Burrell (2010 Giants) being the greatest in season MiL signing of all time or something!

He’d be our best outfield bat if he keeps putting up those numbers.

I keep trying to make something work along the lines of, "the only thing that dies more dramatically than an Everest climber at high altitudes is CarGo's career at sea level," but it's just not snappy enough.

if you need a sherpa to guide you to the heights of everest, you need a diver to find CarGo's value?

I don't hate it at all; it's a total non-move. He's just a player I like making fun of.

If nothing else, he can join Phil Nevin, Joe Nathan, Dan Haren, and Jason Kendall (among others) on the All Wasn’t he a Cub for a Minute? Team.

crazier than all of these combined, for me, is that steve trachsel was briefly on the 2007 team.

Steve Trachsel is by far the pitching name I remember most (pre Kerry Wood) from my childhood, and the best year of his career, fWAR wise, he put up a 5.66 ERA.

I remember Trachsel most for taking forever between pitches. It became a running joke and broadcasts sometimes clocked him. Hilarious stuff

Surprising but I like it. Our outfield depth is not very good and he can still hit a bit. I also didn't realize he's still just 33. Would've sworn he was like 36-37.

Best thing Cargo ever did was hit that dong off Rafael Soriano so Kris Bryant could hit a walk off Dong vs the Rockies in 2015.
