Cubs sign Simontacchi

The Cubs and Jason Simontacchi agreed to a minor league contract.  From (emphasis mine): 

Simontacchi, 32, made 83 appearances, including 40 starts, for the St. Louis Cardinals from 2002-04, compiling a 20-10 record with a 4.77 ERA. He underwent surgery to repair the labrum in his right shoulder following the 2004 season and missed all of 2005.

I’m beginning to see a dangerous trend here.

Followup:  For some opinions of some Cub fans, check out a thread on Bleed Cubbie Blue discussing the Simontacchi pickup.  Like the pickup itself, the jury is out on how Cubs fans feel on the topic though I think it’s safe to say that no one is really excited about the signing.
