Phils trade Worrell to D-Backs

Why is this mentioned on a Cubs blog? Here's why, from

The addition of Tim Worrell and the subtraction of Armando Almanza gives the Arizona bullpen a unique situation. Almanza was their only left-handed pitcher in the pen. "You've just got to try to identify the guys you think have the best chance of getting left-handers out," manager Bob Melvin said. "Quality arms are more important than whether he throws right, left or ambidextrous."

The last statement is one I agree with wholeheartedly. Doubt there's anyone in the Cubs organization that feels the same way.
