Not much to report since that Lee trade. I love the offseason but I hate all the waiting each day. I wish there was one move each day. There ought to be a deadline like there is in the regular season. That way all the moves would come all at once. Well, now that we have first base covered for the year, we still need to get some things on our shopping list. I know everyone says we need to upgrade our bullpen, but I don’t know that you have to pay closer type money to do it. If you […]

Move # 1 for the Cubbies is a good one in my opinion. The sloth doesn’t like it all that much, but what can you do? I think this is a good move. We needed to shore up the firstbase position and decide what we were going to do. I like Hee Seop Choi, but I didn’t think he was ready for the bigtime this year, and that is what we want. We want to win it this year. Derrick Lee is in a better position to help us do that. I really like that he can run and that […]

So there are a few things that I want to talk about. First, why in the world is Darryl Strawberry getting yet another chance in baseball. This guy is a dopehead for life and he is just a loser.

It’s like the bizarro world we’re living in. I think he should be out of baseball. What do you guys think? Second, Gagne won the […]

Free Agent Signing # 1 – Throughout this offseason I am going to try to grade the offseason moves made by teams. I am going to grade them by intelligence to the ballclub. Dan Miceli – Houston Astros This is a good move for the Astros. A team that had a dominating bullpen last year traded one of their more deadly members last week in an effort to reduce payroll. So, what do they do? They go out and get Miceli to keep payroll down but make sure their pen is still solid. They couldn’t afford to lose 2 solid […]
