Chicago Cubs: State of the bullpen

Strop’s woes this season certainly are worrisome, and whether he can put it all together before season’s end is to be determined. If he does, though, the Cubs could roll out a bullpen that looks something like this:

Have these guys had their own issues at times this season? Without a doubt. When considering that group’s 4.13 ERA this season (tied-eighth in MLB), though, one can see that things are trending in the right direction.

Next. Sammy Sosa had no business winning 1998 MVP. dark

While the jury is still out, the Cubs bullpen is slowly but surely rounding into form. If/when that group puts it all together, it could become a major strength for the team, even without a former closer with a 100 mph fastball.
