7/27 Cubs talk

The Cubs currently have one lefty in the bullpen in Sean Marshall and wouldn’t mind adding another. Two pitchers the Cubs’ radar are Washington’s Joe Beimel and Pittsburgh’s John Grabow. The Arlington Heights (Ill.) Daily Herald reported Monday that Beimel and Grabow have drawn interest from the team. Left-handed hitters are batting .233 against Beimel, while Grabow has fared better against right-handed hitters, holding them to a .243 average.

Several of the Cubs say the team doesn’t need to make a move. Lou Piniella deferred to GM Jim Hendry.

“That’s Jim’s department,” Piniella said Monday. “He always likes to do something if he can at the trading deadline. I know he’s been talking to quite a few teams but that’s his area. I get paid to manage.”

i think the cubs should concider getting hank blalock since d-lee is getting so many neck spams

i know that we need a another left handed pitcher out the bullpen but hear me out.i think it would be a better move to still go and get brian roberts for the top of the lineup and use fukedome in the 2 hole now that would be nothing nice!!!
