In regards to Kyle's review of Alf Soriano - c'mon, kids. We can all agree that Hoppy is being PAID to be a 40/40 guy, and we can all HOPE he will be a 40/40 guy, and we can see that he APPEARS to be in decent shape, perhaps the best he has been as a Cub. But that doesn't mean he WILL be a 40/40 guy. I mean, I can squint my eyes reeeeeal tightly closed and cross my fingers and hope and pray and chant incantations, and I can pray not only that Soriano will go 40/40 but also for Lee to regain his 2005 form, and for Fukudome to be the guy we paid for coming out of Japan, and for Zambrano to win 20 with 2 no-hitters.
Don't mean it's gonna happen, and in fact, you could go to Vegas and get pretty long odds on ALL of those.
