Because you can never have enough former Cubs on the current Cubs roster...

To add to this list...

Kerry Wood
Reed Johnson
Todd Wellemeyer
Luis Montanez

...the Cubs announced today that they were in desperate need of a crappy middle infielder, so they invited Augie Ojeda to spring training.
A huge picture of Augie.

On top of that, they decided they needed yet another starting pitcher and invited Braden Looper to spring training.

I thought Looper had retired, and I'm not sure if the Cubs even are considering him as a starter (which he did the last 3 years he pitched), but, whatever.

It seems that the Cubs are doing everything possible to get as many mediocre bodies into camp as possible this year just for kicks and giggles.
