I was going to write: Rookies+Bullpen=2010 Cubtastrophe, but you have to keep your headlines broad to get page views, and not many people are googling ‘Cubtastrophe’…yet.
Left-hander James Russell is the third rookie…barring a trade…to make the Cubs pen for 2010, joining Esmailin Caridad and Justin Berg. Jim Hendry might be hamstrung for big ticket guys, but how hard is it to get some freaking veteran bullpen help? Hell, Chad Gaudin just got released by the Yankees. And while a Gaudin may not make the Yankees…the Cubs are not the Yankees. (chicagobreakingsports) (i also stole their photo)
