Lou Piniella is indicating very clearly that he’d like to have a twelfth pitcher; that means a position player needs to go. But who do you get rid of? Pie is really showing us his range in center – even if he has a dead bat for a while he sure covers a lot of ground in the outfield! Floyd is a nice bat to have coming off the bench; we all figure that Jones is going to get hot like he did last year and Murton could lead the team again in batting average.
I think we should dump Izturis – he can’t hit and he can’t really field either. Theriot can back up Cedeno at short, DeRosa and Theriot can back up Ramirez at third and Ward can back up Lee at first. So we have all the bases covered – literally. What do y’all think, who must go? Sound off Cubs fans.
