ST. LOUIS, Mo. (Cubbie Tracker) -- Compared to the left side of the bullpen, the right side resembles the 1970 Orioles. The Cubs can line up a handful of options leading up to Hector Rondon in the 9th. In fact, just talking about the right side without using the word "Marmol" gives me tremendous comfort. Let's start with the closer, and work our way backwards from the right side. There are probably 5 jobs open here, maybe 6 depending on how many lefties make the bullpen. I will need to head to the medicine cabinet before talking about our collection of southpaws.
I would expect Grimm to make the squad, as he's an option to be an emergency starter. You can see his profile in the starting pitcher section.
All Cub fans would love to see this, but the reality is no matter what Edwards shows in camp, he's targeted for AA, with maybe AAA at some point this year. The stew needs to brew.

And although he promises that his beloved Cubs, as Ernie Banks predicted, will be "Supreme in 2015," deep down Bob understands that life, and the Cubbies, offers no guarantees.
