Damon will want too much over too long relative to his age, IMO. I think the prospect of Furcal and Cedeno as a long-term DP combo and 1-2 punch at the top of the order is too good to pass up.

couldn't say it any better, but if he does make it to around the 15=16th rounds I take a shot.

I would like to see something like that happen...but the IF for the Cubbies is getting a little full...With Ramirez, Walker, Nomar, Perez and Cedeno all looking for a spot something will have to happen before Furcal can be put in the mix... :-?

England's Worcester Canoe Club set the world record for paddling a hand-propelled bathtub. The 25 man team covered a distance of 55 miles, 425 yards in 24 hours on September 28 and 29, 1979.

2/5 of those players (Nomar, Neifi) are free agents, so I don't see the problem. :-?

In my perfect world, Walker is the full-time 2B this year with Cedeno playing Niefi's role and Neifi and Nomar gone.

I think Patterson will be available towards the end of the draft. He'll be drafted in most every league, but not too early. With all the uncertainty surrounding him, many will choose to hold off, so he should be around till closer to the end. Not a flier, but you won't have to use a super-valuable draft pick. I suppose it depends on what happens to him this offseason.

Honestly, I'd expect the same thing from Patterson that he has done his entire career. Be an unconsistent hack of a talented player. It's sad when you see such skill go wasted like it will on him, but he never learns or makes progress... he is the same ol' Patterson he was when he first came up.

I bet that eh won't be playing CF in 2006 for my beloved Cubbies. They are fed up with him. A bad trade is certain!!!!!!!!
