NOMAR to the CUBS heating up

The best soccer to watch is little kids playing everyweek at the state fair grounds. At least they score and I do not have to watch the ball bounce around for ten minutes before a scoring chance occurs. pro soccer is horrible because it is like slow motion hockey aka NHL 95 after you have been playing NHL 2004

I did get excited watching the US on the worldcup run recently, but I think that had less to do with soccer and more the US patriotism.

There's really no need to discuss our subjective reasons as to why we like 1 or the other. ;-)

No need to discuss it because it's pretty obvious. Hockey is a man's sport and soccer is a good sport for pre-pubescent girls. :-b

That's exactly why I didn't want to go there. I prefer hockey but to each his own. I just didn't want to turn this into another politics discussion. :-°

I know. Thats's why I said it. Not to start a political debate but just for the sake of being a wise ass. Hopefully most people will realize I was just being sarcastic. :-D

Go Komets! (enough with hockey)

Now, back to baseball.
Is the Nomar trade rumor dying? Anyone think this will happen? What prospects would the Cubs offer up?

I'm in an NL-only league and have two Cub prospects on my bench. If they are part of the deal, I could snag Nomar because the team who has RJ is ahead of me in the standings. Keeping my fingers crossed.... B-)

Cubs fans, who would the cubs be contributing to the deal? It is easy to speculate about trades just saying prospects, but do the cubs actually have any blue chips in their sustem? I know if it is a two team trade (much more likely midseason than Nomar to a third team) the Red Sox have more talent on the farm than the yankees (they didn't have enough to get Betran or Garcia-both freeagents- what makes anyone think they have a enough to get RJ with still a year left on his deal)...



...I guess just becuase you can spend 200 million a year doesn't mean you can ignore the draft after all... Sorry George. ;-)

Here's some links. Not sure that any of these guys will be totally worth Nomar/ Unit type of deal but I will certainly keep my fingers crossed.

http://cubs.theinsiders.com/2/89208.html

this next one has some more detailed, albeit subjective, annotations:

http://www.nsbb.com/Articles/ArticleText.php?ArticleID=49

Again, I'm not sure that these guys will pan out or excite the Red Sox or Diamondbacks enough to unload Nomar our way but if I were Jim Hendry, I would not hesitate to do that at this time. The hole(s) in the bottom of the Cubs batting order have really proven frustrating to watch this year.
