Glossing over the long list of flops that I provided, all in the years since Buehrle's start BTW.

Aaron Rowand, then just recently there is Jeremy Reed who's had a very successful start, albeit after he was traded.

Just curious, are you a Cub fan?

He claims the 2005 Sox look pathetic compared to the 2005 cubs. I may have some rose-colored glasses on, but c'mon...

The Cubs will be keeping the third place seat warm in 2005. I laugh in the face of their offseason. Burnitz obp was under .300 before Coors, and his average was in the .230s. He is nothing!

Then there is the list of players who've never made it to the Cubs, such as their Beanball Ben Christenson (sp?), Luis Montanez (the Cubs '00 #1 pick who's going backwards) and others.

Your dig on the Sox is oft repeated, but just because it's repeated doesn't make it true.
I agree. I remember Mike Murphy, maybe back in 2001 or 2002, talking about the Cubs All-Star infield of 2005, consisting of Choi, Hill, Montanez, and Kelton. The Cubs will have only one homegrown position player in the lineup to start the year- the Sox aren't the only team that has trouble developing players, despite CubFish's claims.

This makes me think they got rid of Sosa only because he was a cancer, and not because he hit .253 with 130 Ks.
"Well we finally got rid of him...now let's go sign somebody a little bit nicer who will fill that strikeout hole for us."
Sammy without the fan fawning if you ask me.

How so?

You don't pay a guy 5 million a year to sit on the bench.

Corey will start, be it in center or right.

That leaves LF -- sure, they can sign Maggs to play right and move Burnitz over to left, but that means that Hairston won't get in -- meaning, no leadoff hitter.

The smart thing to do would to give Maggs a contract (provided it has outs incase the knee is really messed up), move Burnitz to left, and platoon Walker/Hairston at second. That's a lineup I'd really be afraid of, but I really don't see it happening -- Walker will want full PT at second, though I could be wrong there...

They can't afford both Burnitz and Maggs. Well, realistically they can but the Tribune won't let Hendry raise the payroll that much.

I'm still interested in a direct answer to the question I posed earlier, HomeFish are you a Cub fan?

It's really a simple matter, a simple yes or no. It's not a witch hunt or an accusation, a direct answer would enlighten me as to where you are coming from.
