12/11 Garza, Stewart updates

The offseason is going well for Matt Garza and Ian Stewart. Garza, shut down after 18 starts because of an elbow problem, started throwing on Monday, and happily announced his progress. The Cubs pitcher tweeted: “1st day throwing the baseball! Felt great, #keepitslow! Looking forward to day#2 #GoCubsGo”

Meanwhile, Stewart is taking his offseason workouts to another level. He’s working this week with Hall of Famer Rod Carew, and tweeted on Monday: “Wrist is good, no pain when I swing.” Stewart needed wrist surgery, and had to be shut down. He has agreed to terms on a new deal with the Cubs, which has yet to be officially announced.

I hope Garza is good to come back!! :)

I have no idea why the FO decided to sign this perennially injurie prone “player” in Stewart…betcha he doesn’t last a half season…and aside from that, what is it withe trend of signing all these injured players, some of which haven’t even played in two years and all of them have terrifically horrible career averages and continue their trend of injuries? Oh yeah, now I remember – The Messiah and The Donkey he uses as a muppet, also known as the GM – my personal favorite reference for these two morons is Thoyer…
