Hey now, not ALL the Cub fans are getting all jazzed up about this 'deal'!!

The person most gleeful about these deals, including Marquis and Lilly, has to be Scott Boras, Zito's agent. He must be DROOLING at the shenanigans going on there as the obvious conclusion to him would be that Zito must be worth at least 25 million/ year, based soley on the numbers, not even taking his guitar stylings into consideration.

Are you kidding? I'm totally jazzed for him to pitch like complete garbage and get relegated to long relief. That'll be awesome!

Man, this guy is really ignorant.

And yes 'zito is god,' it DOES make sense to compare the last 3 years.. why would zitos numbers from 2000-2002 matter in an argument about how hes going to perform in 2007? Use that brain that u love so much..


I have just showed how Zito's ERA has plummeted the last three years while Marquis' nearly doubled.

Are you honestly saying you would rather have 2 #5 starters over an legit ace who is under 30, a lefty, and has a Cy Young in his cabinet?! At this point I think you're hopeless.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Never know, assuming Hughes didn't need to be in the deal I would give a lot to get him for our team acs...
