i call bs
i call bull sh*t 1st!!!!!!!!!!! we are sitting around 2nd guessing cubs upper management like we dont have jobs or anything better to do!!! here is my proposed plan for the rest of the off season for trades and free agent signings----- #1 why make up our minds on who would be best for our of and lh bat- lets sign both dunn and bradley making both x dollars and incentive laden for 2 yrs each. 2nd dump marquis and his lousy contract as well as pie and while we are at it also include cedeno. next lets just see who wants to pony up what for derosa. the master plan here is dump some contracts to open up cash and pick up some prospects for our failing farm system- losing those 4 will not kill us. use hoff off the bench, dunn and bradley in rf -using off bench as needed(using to fill in as needed) keep gaith as utility and speed runner, then we need a body that can be used only on inf needs for maybe a pickup of 1-3 mil a yr to spot riot and font- or even better pickup in one of these trades a better ss and use riot as the sub for 2b and ss. we would still have extra bodies and not alot of extra cash being used and get rid of some of this dead wood off the books- put us into a win now mode and give us the extra bats we are so craving!!!! so now we would have the pitching, the bench and the lineup with extra lh bats in it that lou so craves and the bullpen will hold its own (or pickup extra closer /back end pitcher ie huston street) and close out the games without going insanely bonkers fu**in up games. Problems solved. World Series 2009.
