While the Cubs were being beaten to/rescued from Troy Percival yesterday, other options were busy presenting themselves:

Shortly after hearing the news on Percival...Hendry got an unexpected overture from free agent Matt Mantei, who made a sales pitch for a one-year deal...Though the Cubs must do their homework on Mantei, Hendry was impressed with [his] character and pitching tools.


Perhaps, like last season's cornering of the market on exceptionally crappy middle infielders, the Cubs are looking to wrap up every reliever with closing experience who also comes with a history of shoulder problems.
