Cubs Talking to Kiko Calero...

According to a report from, the Cubs and relief pitcher Kiko Calero are in contract negotiations. Calero has been on the Cubs radar for a long time but are hesitant to sign him because of pat arm injuries. They don't really want to pay the 35 year old if he won't be out in the filed. The age really doesn't because older players with arm injuries are more incline to get re-injure.

If you go by 2009 stats this guy should have found a team by now and really the only team that has been mention to have interest are the Cubs. He missed pretty much all of 2008 with the arm injury. After missing the first month of 2009, Calero put up 1 hell of stats. In 2009, Calero went 2-2 with a 1.95 era in 60 appearances (most of his career). Those are not bad stats at all.

I would love the Cubs to sign Calero. I would sign him to a 1 year deal (he wants 2 but the Cubs are not willing to give that to him) worth 1.775 million plus 2 million incentives to make about 3 million.

I will keep you posted.
