I will update my projected Opening Day roster throughout the offseason as the Cubs make moves.


  1. JEFF GRAY will be in the bullpen. He looks nasty, with a 97MPH fastball and some solid off-speed pitches.

  2. I did forget Gray. As of right now, I'd throw him in there instead of Stevens. Maybe next time I update the roster I'll include him in the pen.

  3. yea, he looks NASTY!
