Cubs Get Bartosh
by Alex Ciepley
The Cubs have acquired Cliff Bartosh from the Indians in exchange for minor leaguer Ronald "Bear" Bay. I liked Bear Bay, only because I liked saying his name. Bear Bay.
I'll get over it.
I don't know much about Bartosh, other than that he's a lefty who strikes out a lot of folks and struggled a touch with his control at the major league level last year. He'll apparently be competing with Will Ohman and Stephen Randolph for the last spot in the Cubs' pen.
