Cub Tracks: Of Relievers, Doctors, And Accountants

Tom Ricketts ponders how much money Theo Epstein is spending / saving. - Jonathan Daniel

Cub Tracks returns to look at the Cub bullpen make-up, how Theo is trying to use medicine to gain an edge, and a variety of angles on bean counting.

To sum:

  1. The Cubs like their new pen.
  2. Modern medicine could be the new Moneyball.
  3. The Cubs are either cheap, not, thrifty, or smart investors. Or all of them?
  4. Anthony Rizzo put some accountants to work in the name of a charitable cause close to his heart.

  • Carlos Marmol is ready to welcome his new bullpen mate from Japan. Right. Sure he is.
  • The Cubs left the winter meetings with few new pieces, in part because they did some work beforehand.
  • The new beat guy, Jesse Rogers, clearly has the pulse of the fans as he goes on this poorly argued rant. But there was one intriguing thought: the fate of the rebuild isn't on Theo... it rests on Jason McLeod.
