A way for Colletti to erase mistake and add to playoff roster ? 


By The Sports Xchange 


Chicago Cubs  president  Theo Epstein  is considering releasing closer  Kevin Gregg  after  Gregg  complained in a postgame tirade on Friday that the Cubs were thinking about replacing him as the team's closer next season, the Chicago Tribune reported. 


Gregg's complaints to the media came after he yielded four runs in the ninth inning of the Cubs' 9-5 loss to the  Atlanta Braves .


"The game didn't unfold the way I wanted it to, but from what they told me over the past few days it makes it difficult to play anyways, let alone knowing what they think," Gregg said. "... For an organization to come out and say, 'Hey, we are going to go a different direction,' a little professional courtesy would have been nice.


"I think [the change at closer] shows me that they are not that interested in me coming back here. I will worry about next year next year, but this gives me a good indication of their thoughts going forward."   The Cubs had signed Gregg to a Minor League contract in April after the Dodgers released him.

Add Kevin Gregg to the playoff roster?  Can't be done.  You have to be in the organization on August 31 to be on a playoff roster.  Would we really want him even if it could happen?noidea

Just the facts.

Gregg just gave up a 9th inning HR to lose his 6th game. Post-All-Star ERA over 4, WHIP 1.65, more walks than Ks, 3 blown saves. Yes, Cubs almost released him after the rant ...and those dumb Dodgers let him go.

Ooh, ooh, can I be the stathead that says SV's is a worthless stat?  Can I?  Huh?  Huh?


He had pitched well, but is reverting to form.  We can't add him now, but bring him in again for ST would be ok.  Obviously not as a closer, but a useful arm out of the pen he would be fine.
