Alan Benes goes to the Cubs on a minor league deal....nothing earth shattering, but one of those low risk moves that doesnt cost you anything and could have a nice payoff, Benes could really get a shot there without Tapani, and the inevitable decline of Bere and the lack of a nailed down 5th starter in that rotation

With the exception of Alou, these Cub signings this year amount to nothing more than a body count. BUT they stay in the headlines, dont they.

I agree, its not a huge move at all, but he could come in and replace TVP, or move Sanchez and Tavarez to the bullpen for good.

Wouldn't the Cubs be better off if they moved Tavarez to another teams bullpen?

Tavarez for Borchard :)

at least if y'all get in a fight with Detroit, you'll have a 3rd degree black belt martial artist.

No thanx,but maybe I will bring my bow to the park for the next Tigers game,it might give the Sox an edge in any brawl.
