Yes! Cubs Sign 39-Year Old Trever Miller to Minor League Deal – Wrigley Field 1/30/12

Wow – I’m not sure how Theo, Jed and the Cubs pulled this one off, but they convinced veteran lefty reliever Trever Miller to sign a minor league deal with a much-coveted invite to Spring Training camp in Mesa, Arizona.  This could be a Cubs coup if the 39-year old Miller somehow makes the opening day roster.  The Cubs would be his 9th MLB team and he has held left-handed hitters to a paltry .225 career batting average (overall, he has a 3.80 career ERA and a 1.74 WHIP in parts of 13 big league seasons.  Ouch.

Given this signing, I am keeping my cell phone close to my hip all day long.  I just turned 39 in September, so who knows, maybe I’ll get a spring training invite too.  It’s a free for all on the north side.  If the Cubs do end up trading Matt Garza before the start of the season, the Cubs would arguably have the worst pitching staff in all of baseball…
