Cubs - Signed Grissom, Ojeda, Restovich
Chicago Cubs - Signed OF Marquis Grissom, IF Augie Ojeda and OF Mike Restovich to minor-league contracts.
While some people might breathe a sigh relief at the realization that Marquis Grissom didn’t join the Giants until after Dusty Baker left, I would remind them that while Dusty Baker loves bad, old, players that played for him the most, he also loves the bad, old, players that didn’t play for him. And until Baker’s boss actually takes some control over his employee, Grissom has a terrific shot at making the team and taking playing time away from anyone in their 20s. While Grissom could conceivably platoon with Jacque Jones, anyone who thinks that’s the outcome probably needs to seek a methadone clinic.
Ojeda will play for the Iowa Cubs and will only be on the team if there are several injuries. There’s no reason to think Restovich can’t be a good spare outfielder, but this is the wrong organization for people who seek merit-based opportunity.
