Papelbon contract causing unbalance in Philly bullpen

"Papelbon's enormous contract has made the
Phillies' bullpen an unbalanced one, Matt
Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer argues . The
$50MM the Phillies are spending on
Papelbon forces them to skimp on the rest of
their bullpen, and Gelb argues that the
Phillies would have been better served to
spend that money on four relievers, rather
than on just one. Another reason Papelbon's
contract is problematic, he says, is because
long-term contracts for closers are a bad
idea in general -- he cites research from
ESPN indicating that only three teams have
the same closer in 2013 as they did just two
seasons before."

A-Rod all but assured of receiving a suspension of 50 games or more. he has right to appeal. http://cbsprt.co/1bXbwCl

Haha, just a few days ago this was reported

Cubs manager Dale Sveum told reporters, including the Chicago Sun-Times' Gordon Wittenmyer (Twitter link), Garza will "100 percent" make his start tomorrow against the Diamondbacks.
Ken Rosenthal ‏@Ken_Rosenthal 1m Source: #Cubs will acquire Triple A IF Mike Olt, Single A RHP C.J. Edwards and a third player from #Rangers for Garza.

done deal
Too much for a Garza rental, good trade for the Cubs. Olt should come in and play 3B for them almost right away.

That's a pretty damn decent infield: Olt, Castro, Barney and Rizzo.
