Okay, guys, the Cubs have finally made those big free-agent signing everyone was waiting for!
...so maybe not.
But we did get:
J.D. Closser is our consolation prize for losing out on the Jason LaRue sweepstakes. He's not a good hitter, necessarily, but he's amazingly cheap and will provide us with an alternative/backup to Koyie Hill coming out of Spring Training, which is important if you (like me) think that Henry Blanco is not a reliable commodity.
And A. Blanco is Hendry's token middle infield pickup.
