CHC: Ben Grieve to AAA

This is the corrisponding transaction for Jody Gerut being aquired. The Cubs would be better off with one fewer infielders and keeping Grieve around to pinch hit. Having good pinch hitters or a good bench has never been a priority for Dusty Baker.

There really is no use for Jose Macias on the roster. I guess he's your third SS, forth 2b, and forth 3b. Otherwise I don't know what he brings to the table.
