Recently there’s been some rumblings about the Cubs engaging in “preliminary talks” with the Athletics about acquiring Blake Treinen. Treinen has one of the filthiest sinkers in the game.

Blake "The Witch" Treinen with your standard 100 mph first pitch Sinker.

I among many have been talking about what a great fit Treinen would make for the Cubs and would love to see them make the move. He’s been one of the best in the AL and has dirty stuff. Would fit well in the setup role or where I would like to see him closing and moving Morrow to the setup spot.
Either way we’ll see if the Cubs can add to this bullpen who has struggled as of late due to a laundry list of injuries. Another guy to watch is Dillon Maples who just got called up and has been red hot in AAA as of late. Love to see Bote get the call-up and my guy, Luke Farrell, as well.
