Howry Not Sure He Can Handle Eyre-Less Bullpen

Sports Nation Chicago caught up with Bob Howry as he was on his way to find his old friend and former teammate Scott Eyre. When asked if he was looking forward to rejoining the Cubs, Howry said, “Without Scotty Poo, I’m not sure I can handle this. He was my rock. When I was called into a game, I could always see him warming up — that’s what he did, warm up. Who does that now?”

Howry also voiced concern about how fans would react to his first appearance after being booed out of town. “I just hope security is better than it was when I was with the Cubs before. I really don’t think I can handle another deranged fan rushing the mound.”
