Just because other teams' bullpens are stinking up the joint doesn't mean it's OK for Chicago's.

These guys will surely pitch better, but if you know this group, you know they've always had issues. Strop and Rondon are a mess. Grimm is awful. When you have three mentally fragile guys in your bullpen, that's not a good thing.

They will pitch better, but I just don't think the Cubs can count on a lot of these guys.

What's surprising is guys like Montgomery and Edwards Jr have also struggled.

I really expected Edwards to have a huge year. Same with Montgomery and Wade. But 0 confidence in anyone else.

prob with baseball is - a couple of crap teams will give the cubs a great closer and setup man, to rent, just in time for the final push and the playoffs....system is flawed

How would you change this system? There are buyers and sellers in every market in life.

Man, Montgomery stunk again.

But, the real issue with the Cubs is Heyward has the best average on the team for regular players....that's terrible.

Put some type of cap in, that hopefully would limit teams from renting an extra 30 million for a playoff run every year.

And I am not sure what that cap should look like.
