Why the Chicago Cubs need Brian Wilson

It’s no secret that the Chicago Cubs are looking for a new closer after Kevin Gregg faltered at the end of the season. There has been a lot of talk of filling the position with ‘in house’ options with guys like Pedro Strop or Blake Parker, but neither of those guys have a lot of closing experience at the major league level. Brian Wilson, as I stated last year, would be a great...

Better Know a Cub: Pedro Strop

Pedro Strop was part of the trade that sent Scott Feldman over to the Orioles.

Where Has The Orioles Magic Gone?

2012 was undoubtedly an exceptional year for the Orioles bull pen. Unforunately, 2013 is a different story. Pedro Strop has continued to miss the strike zone in important situations and when he does throw strikes they go into the stands. To Pedro’s defense, his exceptional fastball misleads his experience pitching.  Strop wasn’t always a bull pen guy, he grew up playing shortstop...
