If you want to say Jerry Reinsdorf is gone or Royce Clayton is gone that's ok. Just not Borchard or Buehrle.

Is any of this world cup baseball(which I've never even heard of) gonna be televised at all? I doubt it will but you never know what TNT will cover I think they did the Goodwill Games this year

Man, if he traded Joe, even I'd be pissed. I want him in Chicago, just so the Cubs are reminded of their inane personnel decisions, as if Palmeiro, Maddux, etc. haven't reminded them enough.

Ain't that the truth. We need a new GM badly. Otherwise, KW could end up costing us. At least we have Berry or is that Barry?

speaking of the AFL, due to the shortage of players (as a result of the World Cup), there will be no more doubleheaders on Saturday, but games will continue to last 5 hours because stupid ass managers feel the need to use everyone in their bullpen.

Check the "Bye Bye Liu" thread, I belive Berry is a free agent.

Who did they draft ahead of Borchard? I assume they picked ahead of us.

SS Luis Montanez out of Coral Park High in Miami. Actually, he's a fine prospect, made a late run at Lansing as a 19 year old kid playing in a 21 year old's league, but he's not Borchard. The Cubs are real high on him, most scouts are high on him despite his struggles this season, but we'll see.
