EXcub factors in pursuit of the RING: Antonio Alfonseca

Ohhh Boy. Last year most Cub fans would have driven Alfonseca to Atlanta to get him out of town. Besides Todd Hundley, there is not a Cub that has been more hated by the Wrigley faithful in recent years. One of the only memories of Alf, as a Cub, was when he "bumped" into the Ump arguing Mo Alou's line shot down the LF line that was called foul vs. the Redbirds.

Leo Mazzone has long been hyped as the best Pitching Coach in the Majors. These numbers just serve as proof:
79 G, 6-4, 2.57 ERA, 73.2 IP, 71 H, 24 R, 21 ER, 28 BB, 45 SO.

If the Cubs would have found those numbers out of a RH relief pitcher they'd probably be playing this weekend.
