Pack your bags, Neal.
Chicago Cubs LHP Neal Cotts walked the only batter he faced in four pitches on Wednesday night in Tampa Bay. In his last 1.1 IP, Cotts has given up two home runs, three walks and three hits.
At this point, a change in the Cubs bullpen seems inevitable. Having received kudos from him before, don't be surprised if manager Lou Piniella gives Jose Ascanio another shot in the big leagues soon.
