Soto Makes #4 of the Best Catchers of 2010

Only two catchers’ from the June top five list have remained into July. One of them moved up to number one and the other is almost off the list falling to number five. The three new entries come as a little bit of a surprise since one of them is just filling in for an injured starter. I’m sure by next month this list will change once again.

4. Geovany Soto, Chicago Cubs: Soto, one of the newcomers to the top five, is having a rebound year after struggling in 2009. Soto’s average is currently 75 points higher than his final average at the end of the season last year. After starting off slow in the beginning of this season, Soto is now considered the fourth best catcher in baseball as of July. Soto has 12 home runs, 33 RBI’s and a .293 average. Just like Mauer, Soto doesn’t have great production numbers, but he does have a high average whic is a big advantage compared to other catchers. The Cubs are floundering this season, currently 10.5 games out of first in their division. On top of that Lou Pinella just announced that he will be retiring at the end of the season, which means he has pretty much had enough of the Cubs and their losing ways. Pinella is already giving up and it will be hard for his team to not do the same.

Closing Strike

With a 24-28 record, the Chicago Cubs are not exactly off to a hot start. But one man is off to a phenomenal start- Carlos Marmol. It seems as if many closers come and go in this era of baseball. Two years ago, Marmol showed signs of becoming a great reliever. Last year, he was not bad, but was not what Cubs fans would be hoping for. But at age 27, Marmol could be headed for a breakout season.

On the forefront, Marmol is 1-0 with a 1.46 ERA, which is fantastic. He has converted 11 out of 13 save opportunities, which is certainly solid. But what is just awesome is the fact that he has struck out 49 batters in 24.2 innings (that’s about two per inning, for those who didn’t pass first grade). That just shows that Marmol possesses dominance right now, and can make him a feared closer.

So Cubs fans, you are used to pain. But in 2010, get ready for a dominant closer.

Cubs concerns? Sure, but perspective needed, too

One thing is true about Opening Day in baseball: It’s a lot easier to jump to conclusions about a team than it is to draw them after one game.

But such is the nature of Opening Day.

If the Cubs had lost 16-5 in the middle of July instead of Monday, not a lot would have been said.

But because it was Opening Day, with all of Chicago media at Turner Field and fans starving for games that count, the result drew swift and heated reaction.

On the Daily Herald’s baseball blog, Chicago’s Inside Pitch, suggestions included:

• Offering pitchers Carlos Zambrano and Carlos Marmol in trades.

• Discussing third baseman Aramis Ramirez’ opt-out clause in his contract.

• Talking about the possibility of trading first baseman Derrek Lee if the Cubs are out of the race.

The good news is, Cubs’ nightmare season finally over

Lockers were being cleaned out and boxes were being filled with belongings as the Chicago Cubs hurried to get out of town at the end of a disappointing season.

“It’s a little weird to be packing up and heading home, because the last couple of years we’ve been still playing,” said Ryan Dempster, the losing pitcher Sunday as the Arizona Diamondbacks ended the year with a 5-2 victory.

Dempster, who won 17 games last season, gave up five runs and six hits in five innings, struck out 10 and walked one.

“I think a lot of us wish we had a little bit better year than we did,” he said.
