Quick Hitter: The coddling Cubbies are at it again, according to Chicago Tribune beat reporter Paul Sullivan. Via MLBTR: "...the Cubs are eyeing Japanese pitchers Ken Kadokura (righty) and Shigeki Noguchi (lefty) for bullpen roles. Sullivan says both were released by the Yomiuri Giants, and part of the Cubs' motivation may be to make Kosuke Fukudome feel more comfortable." First Soriano, now this? I don't get it. They're major league ball players. Let me guess, Jim Hendry's next move is to recruit more black people onto the Cubs to help Derrek Lee feel more comfortable after grounding into another 6-4-3 double play.
