시카고 컵스가 박찬호에 관심 있다는 기사가 계속 올라오고 있다.

www.bleedcubbieblue.com에 시카고가 3명의 베테랑 투수들에 관심 갖고 있다는 기사에서 박찬호의 이름을 거론하고 있다. 

작년 필리스에서 선발투수로는 실패했지만, 불펜투수로 50이닝 동안 홈런없이 삼진 52개 볼넷 16, WHIP 1.18으로 큰 활약했다고 적고 있고, 가끔 집중력을 잃어버리긴 하지만 이 문제만 감수한다면 1년짜리로 계약할 가치가 충분하다고 전하고 있다.

조만간 박찬호의 팀이 결정될 것으로 예상된다.

Jim Hendry has publicly stated that he wants to add another veteran arm to the bullpen (this despite the fact that the Cubs already have some good young arms in Esmailin Caridad and Justin Berg, among others). There have been several rumors flying the last few days about who this pitcher might be, so let's examine three of them.

This tweet from SI's Jon Heyman indicated that the Cubs had interest in Chan Ho Park, who did an excellent job for the Phillies last year after they yanked him from their rotation. Park was horrific as a starter, posting a 7.29 ERA in seven starts, but once moved to the bullpen he put up solid numbers. In 50 relief innings he struck out 52, walked only 16, had a 1.18 WHIP and allowed zero home runs. According to the guys I spoke to on the hotstove.com preseason roundtable discussion yesterday, Park occasionally suffers from "lack of focus", but if the Cubs can deal with that problem, he'd probably be worth having on a one-year deal.

Heyman's tweet also indicated the Rays are looking at Park. They're doing so likely to replace Joe Nelson, who, according to this Chicago Breaking Sports article, has expressed interest in joining the Cubs. Nelson pitched for the Rays last year after bouncing around from the Braves to Red Sox to Mets to Royals to Marlins for several years before that. He got hit pretty hard after the middle of May and was finally sent outright to Triple-A on August 1 and DFA'd (see, some teams actually do that!) in September. He's 35 and has really only had one good year -- his 2008 season with the Marlins.

Noah Lowry, who at one time appeared to be yet another solid starting pitching arm coming out of the Giants organization, has had a series of injuries and health problems, including being diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome, described at that link as:
