Yes... Corey Patterson will be ready for spring training, but I wouldn't touch him with a 10 foot pole. He is a .260, 15 HR, 60 RBI 20SB player at best. Trust me. :-t

I agree. He started great last season, and with the cubs offense this year he will be huge.


I agree too...

Why dont the Cubs just have Grudz hit lead-off and Patterson hit #2. They just signed T. Walker, he isnt a typical lead-off hitter either, but they should be better than Patterson hitting lead-off
Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

Most likely the lineup will be....

1. Grudzy
2. CP
3. Sosa
4. Lee
5. Alou
6. Ramirez
7. Gonzo
8. Barrett

CP should bat lead off with Walker in the 2 spot when he plays....but all of this will change when Pudge signs..... :-D

Still don't see why we didn't sign Castillo at around $4-$5 million/yr vs. Walker&Grudz at $4 million/yr.

Castillo filled both (need for 2b and lead off guy).

He's popular, but I don't think Patterson will imitate his 2003-before-injury. As said before, his batting eye needs work.
The question is, will he be a Hillenbrand or a Soriano/Sosa?

I think he has the potential to be another Beltran type player.

I think so too and he could go low because of his injury ;-)

Dusty isn't one to stick with struggling youngsters. He better not slump to start the season.
.280 avg, 80 runs, 20 HR, 70 RBI and 25 SB.

I think that is a conservative projection he could go .290 25 hr 90 rbi 30 sb...
