From all indications the Cubs are looking for help in the bullpen, and not for their offense. During Sports Central on Wednesday night, Dave Kaplan mentioned his sources indicated the Cubs would really like to add George Sherrill but that the Orioles’ closer would cost the Cubs too much in terms of prospects.
Kaplan indicated the Cubs have inquired about Joe Beimel, John Grabow and Chad Qualls … the same names as reported on Tuesday.
As discussed on the CCO Radio Show Wednesday night, the Cubs have the talent to win the division, if they can relax and play to their abilities.
Stay Tuned … the non-waiver trade deadline is eight days away.
