WELCOME TO THE FUKUDOME
This is a great signing for the Cubs. If the many scouting reports on him are correct, we just got much better. He’ll get on base, play great D and hit for some power.
Where he will bat will be interesting. I suppose that depends on the Brian Roberts to the Cubs rumors, which won’t go away.
Yes, I can dare to dream. Having 2 players at the top of the lineup that work counts and pitchers and get on-base is something I don’t think the Cubs have ever had in my lifetime.
Even if that remains a rumor, the Cubs first 4 of Soriano, Fukudome, DLee and Ramirez will not be fun for the opposition.
