I don't know that Mueller really fits into the discussion because he was actually good. Which is probably why the Cubs traded him (with cash) for an injured minor league relief pitcher who never took the field in the Cubs system.


Remember the ceaseless threads about moving Mueller to second base? That was at Cubs.com


Now that you mention it, I do. Although I can't recall what the logic was, given that franchise savior of the moment Bobby Hill was expected to take over second base for the next decade and I don't remember anyone of value in the system at third.

One can only hope this means they're done shopping at the Dollar Tree for positional help.

Along with Bobby Hill, Hee Seop Choi, Augie Ojeda, etc., etc.

Okay, maybe not Augie Ojeda.

Nic Jackson too.


I learned recently that he just retired a couple of years ago.


Roosevelt Brown was also a minor league stud who I had high hopes for

He did save that first game with a great catch, though. So there’s that.

Thank you! I was trying to think of him when I made my previous post and just couldn't come up with his name.

I don't know if that's a good move on his part or not. I think a big part of his problem is that he had no spring training, so a minor league assignment might have helped him get back on track. And I can't imagine anyone taking a chance on him at this point after struggling with two different teams.
