According to Bruce Levine of ESPN Radio 1000, the Cubs have inked backup catcher Henry Blanco to a two-year, $5MM deal. Gil Meche could be the next player the team signs.
Blanco is a great sign, he is the best backup catcher in the game and the best defensivly not named Pudge.
I have always been a great fan of Gil Menche. He's under 30, has great potential, and will cost less than alot of free agent pitchers. Here's his numbers.
11-8 156k 4.48 era in 32 games... he has been great at times and terrriable at times.. Ilove to see him in a cubbie uniform!
