    So umm **** Ian Stewart

    He was on a rehab assignment at Triple-A Iowa, during which he went 4-for-44 (.091) with 16 strikeouts. Rehab assignments have to end after a certain length, so the Cubs activated him from the DL last Friday and optioned him to Iowa. Then this happened, writes Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago:

    Sure, the CBA allows this, but... does this make you look good to management? Here's what Jed Hoyer had to say:

    "We had a lot of discussions with him about it, in the end that was the decision," Hoyer said cryptically. "He has the right, itís the given right the players have and that was the decision."

    Funny thing is he's not getting any playing time because of Vitters. I'd cut him as well but Theo and Jed might have too much of an ego for that.

    Meh. Let him rot on the bench in Iowa. Better than letting him catch on elsewhere.

    I think they have to pay him the $2 mil. just keep him down there and give him like 6 ABs the rest of the season.

    Resigning him never made much sense, outside of a backup in case Valbuena was absolutely horrible. Especially given how poorly things ended last year.

    Sadly, there weren't many better options on the market, Wiggington, Hannahan, Youkilis and Keppinger have been very bad.

    I'm actually OK with this. He had a free 3 day weekend so he took advantage of it. He's been struggling and it will give him a chance to clear his head
