Rumored to be a possibilty for the Cubs - a lot of people are down on him leaving Coors but he could do well in Wrigley if he gets the playing time.

He has 14 HRs in 180 career ABs at Wrigley (7.78%)
He has 28 HRs in 351 career ABs at Coors (7.80%)

Everywhere else...233 in 4261 (5.47%)

He would have a ton of protection in the Cubs lineup, so he would see good pitches. I'm not championing Burnitz, but he could be a buy low candidate...

The D-Backs are also supposed to be taking another look at him.

Anyone heard the Astro's rumor?

Him at Minute Maid wouldn't be too bad with that lineup.

The other thing about Burnitz to the Cubs is that he'd play.

Dusty, who never met an old guy he wouldn't play over a promising youngster, has announced Jason Dubois will have to take a back seat while Hollandsworth starts in left :-o.

In this scenario, Burnitz is a rather clear upgrade.

no team can survive the awesome high strikeout low OBApower of a lineup with Sosa, Patterson, and Burnitz.

I %-6 dusty.
