Cubs Call Up Jose Ascanio

Cubs call up Jose Ascanio

By Paul Sullivan

MILWAUKEE- Jose Ascanio is the latest addition to the Cubs bullpen, replacing the injured Chad Fox.

Ascanio was 1-1 with a 1.01 earned-run average at Triple-A Iowa, where he made six starts. Fox was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation, and is probably done for the year.

Chad Fox's spring training invite is alreay in the mail
Whether it comes from [the media] or even comes from some fans, who are deservedly upset at a given point, it's really just noise. If we let it affect our decision making, shame on us

he is one of those guys you root for, no matter what team he plays for. Great story, and you have to admire his heart and desire. But sooner or later you have to wonder when he will realize that he has to hang it up.

On a side note, this recent comeback makes me think of the movie The Rookie. He is coaching/teaching kids and they kinda inspire him to try to make a comeback. But he should have stayed there. I feel for the guy, but he cant do it anymore.
