Cubs will try to forget that first one; For fans, it will linger

Kyle Hendricks (photo by Stephanie Lynn) Wow. That first game was a rough one. The one starter everyone feels confident in, fell on his face. The bullpen performed down to our worst fears.

Spring Training Rundown: Bullpen

Jed Hoyer has been busy fortifying the Cubs bullpen of late. As camp opened earlier this month we learned setup man Rowan Wick is bothered by an intercostal injury (which ended his 2020 season) and is unlikely to be ready for Opening Day. Lefty Kyle Ryan opened on the Covid restricted list, potentially further depleting the returning... Read more »
