Bruce > Butler


Well they haven't put put their top 100 yet, but even then.

They are entitled to thier opinion.

Just as Bryan Smith put Bruce at 15 and Billy Butler at 9 on his rankings. Just as the very knowledgable community at minorleagueball (http://minorleagueball.com/story/2007/2/7/22118/64322) put Butler at 6 and Bruce at 13.

Ugh, they've done nothing to grow any talent on the offensive side of things. Quick name me the last player to come up through the Cubs system and have any impact....aside from that one season Corey Patterson was decent.


Good point, but lets not give up on Pie just yet.


Oh no. I'm excited for Pie. I'd love to see him shine in ST and get the CF gig, moving Soriano to RF, making Jacque tradebait.
