Silva For Bradley A Steal For Cubs

Bullpen BrianCorrespondent IJuly 1, 2016

Carlos Silva has won me over this season.
And that’s saying something because I didn’t give the guy a chance at first blush.
Over-weight, over-paid and over-valued, I thought.

Never thought Silva would make it past spring training, and I said as much!
Sure as heck didn’t think he’d win 10 games or have 13 quality starts, either.
Heck, I was content just seeing ‘Milton the Terrible’ depart Chicago–forget about gaining Silva.

But Silva’s been respectable for the Cubs.
He’s pitched well, carries himself as much, and says all the righ things, too.
Had he not suffered the heart setback, which cost him a month, he could be working on a 15-win season, which is outstanding given the circumstances.

Getting Silva for Bradley, who’s been a dud for Seattle, was a steal for Jim Hendry. Didn’t know it last December, but I’m all in for Silva as a Chicago Cub.
