Cubs Trying To Sort Out Bullpen Arms

According to Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune, Cubs GM Jim Hendry is working the phones in an attempt to sort out his bullpen situation.  Chad Gaudin, Angel Guzman, David Patton, and Jeff Samardzija are vying for two spots.  Samardzija can be sent to Triple A, but Patton is a Rule 5 pick and the other two are out of options.  Something has to give; a trade of Guzman or Gaudin seems likely.  Gaudin may be less desirable given his $2MM salary, but Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post figures he'll land on the Rockies' radar.  Bruce Miles of the Daily Herald weighs in here.
