I’m sure you’ve all heard by now, but the Cubs inked Fukudome to a 4 year, $48 million dollar deal. I’m excited about the deal, as the outfield was looking really scary after Hendry dumped Floyd, Jones and newly acquired Omar Infante.
With Soriano and Fukudome maning the corner spots, and in some cases, it sounds like centerfield. I’d like to see Pie get a good shot at grabbing the full time centerfield position. In my dreams, I’d really like to see Sam Fuld “wow” the staff in Spring Training, and get it instead, but I think the higher ups, will give Pie his shot first. All in all, I really like the way this roster has shaped up now. Of course, nothing matters on paper.
More to come on this, as I’m sure Joe is giddy with excitement, since this was the one signing he was jonesing for.
