For The 2010 Cubs, The Best Relief Might Be Found From Within

Why the Cubs should not sign a free-agent relief pitcher.

Coming in with Runners On – Not our Forte.

Who in the Rockies bullpen handles the heat well? Who chokes? Who do you want in with runners on and the game on the line?

"That was a game that for the last three years we’ve lost, ... This is a different team. This is a team that is very good at the end of the bullpen and a team that [Nos.] 1 through 8 is swinging the bat very well right now." This is what Chipper had to say after last night's 17 hit affair.

The Worst Bullpen In Angels History

11

A minor bit of blogwhoring, but I figured that some folks might be interested to know that the 2009 Angels bullpen is the worst in team history as measured by ERA (The second worst was the 1994 arson squad, with a 5.47 ERA, that is, this team is a full half-run worse; measured against league average of 4.88 ERA, this team's bullpen is more than a run worse than that at 6.01). The only two relievers with above-average ERAs (as measured by ERA+) are Darren Oliver and small-sample-sized (3.1 IP) Rich Thompson. Can Brandon Wood pitch?

Sources: Royals, RHP Cruz near deal

25
Free-agent pitcher Juan Cruz, caught in an unusual vise of rules and economy this offseason, is moving closer toward a deal with the Kansas City Royals, according to three sources. Arizona would get two 2009 compensatory draft picks -- a sandwich pick between the first and second rounds and the Royals' second-round pick at around No. 55 overall -- if the deal is completed. I like this. I think it's a risk worth taking as far as this year is concerned. Definitely decreases the dependence on Farnsworth.

Wags Back In August?

11

Eddie Coleman reports as much in a blog post over at the WFAN website. Wagner is reportedly ahead of schedule and, depending on the state of things in Flushing, might be back in the 'pen by mid-August. Not to get too far ahead of ourselves here but, as Cerrone notes with regard to this possibility, that could leave the Mets with one scary bullpen for the stretch run. I guess we can just wait and hope for the best on this.

Daily News: 3 Years/$33 Million for Fuentes?

7

I like that Fuentes may be seeking only a three-year deal. But if $10-11 million per year is too much, then what is Omar thinking Fuentes is worth? Is this Omar doing a good job of playing in the deep closer market, or needless quibbling?
