Sauerbeck likely to go to Cubs

Postby Transmogrifier » Fri Dec 05, 2003 11:07 am

I've heard this from a variety of sources--including Gammons--but can't find it in print.

I don't know who they'll get, but it's likely to happen. I think this is a good thing--he couldn't get AL lefties out, but is pretty good in the NL. :-b
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

That bully would look pretty nice then. Some power righties in Hawkins, Farnsworth, AND two good lefties, although Sauerback is more situational than Remlinger. The only thing is, I'm still not completely sold on Borowski as the hammer.


He pitched well last year but I just don't think he has the tools to be effective all year. He is a TON better than Rocky Biddle tho!
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.

who would the Sox get in return?

I hear there's a hot prospect named Prior making his way up through their system - maybe we can snag him?

Mike Remlinger is actually a righty specialist, not a lefty specialist, so getting Sauerbeck seems like a good idea. Besides, Remlinger looks like Billy Bob Thornton :-o

But I have to agree, that is looking like one of the best bullpens out there. If they get Sauerbeck, and he gets his act together, that's 4 excellent relief pitchers. Personally I think Farnsworth could be great this year. It's just a hunch though.
