While we there the news came across the wire that the Cubs had acquired yet another bullpen arm. They now have four new relievers...Aroldis Chapman, Mike Montgomery, Joe Nathan...and Joe Smith. Throw in Hector Rondon, Pedro Strop, and Travis Wood (the only three relievers who were pitching well), and you've got yourself a nice little bullpen.
This team has been so much fun to watch this year. They appear to have all the pieces in place. Maybe Losing is So Last Century (like the t-shirt says on the young lady).
I think I'll be spending the rest of the week walking around the house and knocking on wood.
