What Relievers the Cubs Could Look at...

These are relievers that Jim Hendry could look at not closers:

Rafael Betancourt is a righty and has a 2-1 record with a 2.93 era in 43 innings pitch.
LaTroy Hawkins is a righty and has a 1-4 record with a 1.95 era in 50.2 innings pitch.
Brandon Lyon is a righty and has 6-4 record with a 3.05 era in 62 innings pitch.
Joe Beimel is a lefty and has a 1-5 record with a 3.59 era in 47.2 innings pitch.
John Grabow is a lefty and has a 3-0 record with a 2.81 era in 57.2 innings pitch.

Rating them in which I like are the best:

1) John Grabow because he can get outs as a lefty specialist and I think the Cubs will resign him.
2) Latroy Hawkins because he can throw strikes.
3) Rafel Betancourt because he is a good righty that will help.
Then the next pitchers come but I really don't think they will help the Cubs as much.

Signings: Grabow to 3 year 12 million. Hawkins to a 1 year 3 million, and Betancourt to a 2 year 8 million.


Tomorrow I will have what closers the Cubs should look at.

Other Notes: Ken Rosenthal mention that Rich Harden to the Twins can definitely happen.
