I didn't have to call that. It's a no brainer

We dumped most of Jones' contract and picked up a good utility player who we traded for a bullpen pitcher with some electric stuff. Don't know if you guys heard or not, but the Cubs signed Kosuke Fukudome last night. The pieces will start to fall into place now that he is locked up. We'll probably see the cubs land Brian Roberts over the next few days and pick up another starting pitcher. Things are looking good for next year. Potential Lineup;
Derosa RF, 2B, 3B, 1B
Free Agent pickup or Trade
Gallagher, Hart or Dempster
Gallagher, Hart, Petrick or Dempster(whoever doesn't make the rotation)
Obviously the pitching situation would change with the Roberts trade, rumors are that either Hill or Gallagher would be moved in the deal with Patterson, Pie or another prospect. We'll see what happends, but I like the 2008 Cubs roster already.
Thanks for the breakdown SoCal. But, you forgot about Prior for the rotation
But seriously, I'm calling it right now. All in good health the Cub's will have one of if not the most dominant bullpens in the majors. Which is a very important attribute for a winning season. I almost feel more comfortable not having Dempster in the bullpen. If he can prove to be a starter all the better. I'm also calling Soto to be amonst the uppper echelon of catchers offensively. And if this Fukdome character turns out to be anything close to what they are making of him. It should be smooth sailing.
I've always been a Z-Bo fan with the dramatics and over the top emotions, but with his performance following the big contract extension, he's been on thin ice with me. It'd better be back to the old ways with him, or there is going to be a lot of booing in Wrigley when he takes the mound.

I know that the Cub's playing surface has been rated as one of the worst by MLB players.
Note that the head groundskeeper for the Sox coordinated the work. Take that for what it's worth.
