Cubs Sign John Grabow to Another Two Years

The deal hasn’t officially been announced yet, but it’s expected to be two years and $7.5 million.

Hopefully Grabow turned a corner last year (as so many players do in their 30s…), and can be a successful staple at the back end of the Cubs’ pen this year.

    When people list the stupendously bad moves that Hendry has made as Cub GM, they never mention these little ones. They’ll bring up Bradley (which was actually a calculated gamble that just didn’t work) or wasting full seasons while hoping Prior/Wood became healthy, but they never mention the 10,000 paper cuts.

    This deal is one of them. Overpaying a middle reliever by about 5 times what he’s worth, and for TWO years. And this is during an off-season where there will be so many available MRer’s that you won’t be able to swing a cat without hitting one.
