From the CCO Inbox – 5/12/09

With the Cubs spending Monday recovering from 20 games in 20 days and receiving good news on Derrek Lee, it seems like the right time to empty out the CCO Inbox and pass along information we have received over the last three weeks.

So while Lou contemplates the next change or changes to his bullpen here is the latest round of cool stuff that includes a Cubs’ poll and an updated Cubs’ prospect list…

Joe from View from the Bleachers asked us to pass this along to the Faithful. Joe runs a great site and has put together an interesting poll. Take you time and let your vote be counted.
