Did you actually look at what dotel's done while healthy?
Last healthy season in Oak: 22 saves, 1.16 WHIP, 72k in 50.2 innings, crap 4.09 ERA, 6 wins.
Granted it was three years ago, but the cubs are in dire straits.
Riske's another guy who's been injured, and also has a very nice line for his last full season, not to meantion a workable line from last season.
Are either studs? No. Do they fill a need for the win now cubs? Yes. In Pie playing this year? Not unless the cubs have no chance of winning.
