ESPN.com is saying the Burnitz deal will be announced as soon as the Sosa deal goes down.

"With the addition of the mighty Jeromy Burnitz, a Cubs championship is all but assured. We fully expect him to exceed the combined numbers of the treacherous dogs Sosa and Alou. With the speed of Hairston at the top of our lineup our offense will be all but unstoppable, we have no reason to doubt that he will have an OBP well over .900. Praise Dusty!"

I'm blown away at how many people care so much about the Cubs.

You know there is an outside chance they could also sign maggs as well as burnitz.

VERY slim chance. The Cubs are in salary-dump mode and are probably unlikely to throw a bunch of money at Ordonez.

All the hot air you read is just stories planted by Boras to try to sqeeze Detroit. It's his favorite game: "Someone else is interested. Better up your offer." ALL statements directly from the Cubs are that the Cubs are not interested.

Yep. I would imagine that they have no interest in a 5 year deal now that they have to eat so much of Sosa's contract.

There's no doubt that the cubs (and most other teams) have a large advantage over the Sox at 3B, but the "advantage" at SS is slim or none. Barring a reversion to pre-2004 performances, Garciapara and Uribe are about even offensively (.842 OPS v. .833 OPS). Garciapara is not likely to improve away from Fenway. Meanwhile, Uribe is a WAY better fielder at one of the two most defensive-oriented positions on the diamond.

Unfortunately, as Kirk Hinrich said, statistics are like bikinis, they show most of it, but not all of it.

Comparing their OPS will show similar players. I don't think there was a player more inconsistant than Uribe last year. Garciaparra is steady and solid. Uribe does play good D, and he is a good deal for the money, but his inconsistancy is going to drive me mad. I think he went 4-160 in June/July.

Call me when Uribe hits .308 for a full season.

Hopefully I'll never have to.

But, please, call me when the White Sox get an actual power pitcher. That's a call I really want to get.

Give me five Buehrle's. Keep your "power" pitcher.
