if the brewers could get millwood and b. molina, i would call it a good off-season for them.

I'm assuming you're talking defensively? I would still think Texas's IF of Teixeira, Soriano, Young and Blalock would be better offensively. But yes, it would be a very good IF.

I agree that the Cubs should go after Furcal, they could really use a reliable SS.

no, i meant offensively. defensively they'd be well-off, too, but offensively they'd probably be the 2nd best IF in the majors behind that texas squad you mentioned (assuming they don't trade away soriano ;-))

That sounds good, just don't expect too much from Millwood. he's very inconsistant. I could see him slotting in as a solid #3 behind Sheets and Davis (though I think he'll get paid much more than a #3 should be paid). Molina would be a good fit behind the plate for the Brew Crew. Are they actually spending money this offseason?

Just wondering...who were the biggest (best) FA's last year.

Beltre, Sexton, Ordonez, and D. Lowe come to mind. The teams that signed those guys didnt do so well.

It's because Burnett's lowest ERA for a year was 3.31, while Millwood won the "ERA title" in his league last year.

Kinda like Bernie. :-/ I never said that would be a great move, but it is a typical Yankee signing. :-o

Bad signing for anyone except the Yankees. They play by a different set of rules. As long as money is not an issue, there is no such thing as a bad signing.
