Goatriders of the Apocalypse

I'm just excited as hell that....

...SI is reporting that the Cubs' primary off-season target is a power hitting right fielder named Fukudome!

Imagine the fun I am going to have writing all about the Fukudome.  Mad Max III - Beyond Fukudome!  See Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton Live at the Fukudome!!  Does grass grow at the Fukudome, or do they keep it trimmed?

Too rich....

Don't get too excited...

according to http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2007/05/mike_plugh_on_k.html

"He is an on base machine with power to the gaps. He won't be a home run slugger, but he'll be standing on first or second base after about 40% of his plate appearances."

Doesn't sound like he'd be a "fit" for Jim Hendry's vision of the cubs.
