Holy Cow!

Cubs. Free agent. 8 years. $136 million. When’s the last time Cubs fans heard those types of numbers? Oh, that’s right…NEVER. That’s why the signing of outfielder Alfonso Soriano is music to our long-suffering ears. I can’t remember the Cubs ever bringing in an All Star player during his prime and doling out this much money for them. Gives them instant credibility. Sure, it’s a lot of money, but it sends a message that they’re finally serious about winning. Those empty seats at the end of last season must have scared the hell out of them and, apparently, the money out of their wallets. Now all’s we need is a pitching staff…

    He’ll be a great addition to a team that’s lacking star power. Let’s hope they can grab a good pitcher or two.

    If they don’t grab a good pitcher, we’ll be watching games with scores of 9-7, 6-8, etc…with the Cubs on the losing end.
