    Pretty intriguing guy. It's not really indicative of anything but I do wonder with a guy like him in the fold if they try to rehab someone as the #5 starter the way pitt was famous for. Seems like a a great guy to have in the fold though given the way they've struggled with pitching.

    This, or be more hands on with kids in system and work with them

    This also would be great to see him work with guys like Wilson Rondon Edwards and get them going again

    Kinda makes me want to look at pitchers that didnít measure up. Bucholtz comes to mind.

    If I could bet any amount of money and had to guarantee one guy the Cubs sign in FA this year, it has to be Tyson Ross.

    He did jilt them then got dumped by the new beau. Feels dirty to me.

    seems like Bosio only had good years when he had a reclamation project
    109 years since the last back to back world titles
