The Cubs and Red Sox completed the Marlon Byrd trade today as the Cubs acquired Hunter Cervenka. Cervenka is a 22 year old in A ball with a minor league ERA of 5.97. He has struck out over 8 batters per 9 innings, but he's also walked 7.2 per 9. I'd write more on this, but I'm afraid what I've just writen is more than likely the most that will ever be written about one Hunter Cervenka.
Seeing as this is barely news you should go ahead and get back to our daily baseball bingo. It's more fun than trying to figure out who this guy is and why the Cubs had to take him. Carlos Marmol could actually give this guy tips on throwing strikes. If there is anything positive to say about Cervenka it's that so far this year he's struckout nearly 14 batters per 9 innings. It's only 15 innings and prior to this year it was always around 8 so I'm hesitant to think he's improved much or any at all in that regard. The walks are still absurdly high.
