Monday Morning Cup O'Joe

- Rudy Jamarillo on the radar screen (Source) – “Jaramillo, 59, spent 15 seasons as the Rangers’ hitting coach and earned a reputation as one of the best in the game. He left the Rangers this week because he wanted a multiyear contract.” I’m not a big believer in the hitting coach, but after the slump we saw last year, it can’t hurt, can it?
- So Taguchi shown the door (Source) – I wondered why he was on the roster all year last year anyway, but this one simply becomes a move to make room on the 40 man roster heading into the off-season. Taguchi is 39, and my guess is that he’ll retire.
- Jason Marquis leaving Colorado? (Source) – Tracy Ringolsby mentions that former Cub, Jason Marquis has it in his plan to sign with the NY Mets this off-season. My question is if you had the chance to sign him back, would you take him on the Cubs? I think I would. Every team he’s ever been on has been in the post-season. Think about that for a second. That’s insane.
- Opening Day Lineup Quiz – I took this quiz and had a blast. I scored something like 123, which wasn’t bad, considering I generally don’t remember much about the current season, let alone the past seasons. Take the quiz and post your score.
