CUBS OFFSEASON CHECKLIST
I’m not the only one that doesn’t like the Cubs recent moves. ESPN’s Buster Olney (if that’s his real name) is also not a fan.
“I think the flurry of moves has made them more vulnerable — and in time they’ll wish they had simply kept Mark DeRosa, an extraordinarily versatile and underrated player, rather than spending millions and millions on Bradley.”
Olney also writes that he hears that these recent deals will not reignite the Peavy to the Cubs talk.
So if you’re scoring at home:
Additions: Gathright, Gregg, Vizcaino, 3 minor leaguers, Miles
Subtractions: Marquis, Wood, DeRosa, Ward, Blanco, Edmonds, Howry
Go ahead and add Bradley to that mix. Are the Cubs better or worse than the they were after ’08′s final out?
