In real life to clear money to sign nomar and sign for other needs or keep sosa ?
Bear in mind porbably if sosa gets traded pie would likely start in sosas spot.

Yes I would trade him, that'd open money for Maggs or Beltran +Nomar and some bullpen help. Also there's no way Pie will play on the Major League level next year, 2006 at the earliest, look for him to make any sort of impact in 2007.

they'll never trade sosa unless he becomes a clubhouse cancer or stops them from signing prior, wood and zambrano. he means too much to the team and their fans. sammy is the cubs. that would be like the yanks trading jeter

will someone please tell me where you make those banners people have in their sigs?

I gotta believe that Chicago and Sammy will find common ground. He is not a 15 million a year player anymore. But I gotta believe that he is a Chicago icon. Right Chicago guys? No? Yes? Nope he is just a corker? :-D

I think they would have a ton of trouble finding anyone interested in Sosa, unless they picked up a really huge part of the check, and even then it would be tough.

Right on the money, Bonzo. Sosa's near the end of the line and this is as good as it will get with him, so who'd want him? If they could get someone to take his contract they'd dump him in a minute.

It is also my humble opinion that signing Nomar would be a mistake as well. It's about time the Cubs start looking at players who can actually take a pitch or two, which is what is going to be their downfall in the postseason (if they make it). His foot and steady decline in recent seasons make him a poor investment.

I think it would be better for the Cubs but they wouldn't get much back and it would be a PR nightmare.

It would be interesting to get some opinions from Cubs' fans on this because it would seem to me that getting into the Series would be more important than keeping a has-been such as Sosa. Judging from the booing they were giving him earlier this season I think they realize this too. If it were me I'd blow up the offense in the offseason and get rid of everyone but Lee. You cannot win in the postseason with no one on your roster with over 50 walks. Yet, that is only my opinion, but I don't remember a team winning the Series in recent memory that relied entirely on the HR like they do.
