Seriously, where do the Cubs get off on stealing premiere players that small-market teams cannot afford? The Cubs are what is wrong with baseball. Unbelievable. :-P

I'd prefer they didn't sign Bradley and grabbed Dunn instead....

I could point out the difference between making multiple wily trades to get a player like Peavy, and throwing massive sums of money at a player like Sabathia.....but what's the point?

Not sure why you'd want that. :-o He may be a slightly better hitter, but he's a much worse fielder.

Considering the fact that Dunn can play more than 100 games in a season, I'd say he's a far better hitter. Since he'll actually, ya know, be on the active roster and able to hit.

I still wonder if moving Derosa means Brian Roberts rumors flair up again.

Bradley is a plus hitter and a plus fielder. Even if you play him 100 games and then some scrub in the other 60 games you'll get more production out of that duo then you would Dunn.

Bradley has never made even one error during his times on the disabled list. He hasn't struck out either. There's something to be said for that. What it is, I have no idea!
