Did anyone notice that the Cubs traded Bellhorn for for Hernandez? Since Hernandez is a shortstop, does that mean that Mike Lowell is today? Any thoughts on who they will have play third this weekend?

I like how the Cubs see a "Weakness" on their team and
Address it IMMEDIATELY, as opposed to waiting for the offseason,
like we always do. Then again, we need a Marlin type team,
that has good players, and willing to Give Them Away for
next to nothing, and always to us Only.

But, here, I don't see how the Cubs really upgraded the third bas position. And I don't see them getting Lowell now, especially if the Boss is said to want him instead. And if he does, where does that leave Robin?

I agree Viva, Hernandez is hitting like 229 in Colorado rarified air. Plus you are moving him to another "unnatural" posistion. At least teh strikeouts will remain the same.

I have to attach this with apologies to everyone offended.
