Rumors are going around the baseball world that the Chicago cubs are close to signing Washington Nationals pitcher Jonathan Papelbon. Current cubs pitcher Jon Lester has said that the team should do it and agreed it would benefit the team.
I think this move could help the bullpen because they are sketchy in some spots and Papelbon was a starting pitcher back when he debut with the Boston Red Sox. Some fans might not like the move if the cubs would choose to do it. A lot of people thought the same thing when the cubs traded for “The Cuban Missile” Androis Chapman. Chapman is helping the cubs on their playoff push.
