the discussion on why the cubs would sign this guy has gone on for days, but does anyone give this guy a prayer at somesort of rebound/lower K totals for this year. Could he possibly have one good shining year, just to prove naysayers wrong?

No, plate discipline is not a trait one picks up when they're 35

He'll have a very Sammy-like year: 30+ HR's, 90+ RBI, and a ton of K's.

as has been said above he isn"t the age to expect a shining year

last year was probably the best you will ever see from him

I am not saying he will be much worse than Sosa would have been but he is NOT going to set the world on fire

he's no carlos beltran, but i think cub fans will warm to him once we see him play his heart out in right field. its okay for him to have high K's b/c he's going to be the #7 hitter, not the #3-5 hitters.

another factor in how well cub fans warm to him will be how well the team overall plays. if nomar, aramis, and co. step up to the plate and score runs, then people won't care how much he K's.

Yeah like he did in Shea. Burnitz can be a .250 30/90 player...or a .210 20/70 player. We shall see, but the numbers outside of Coors last season I think were pretty ugly if memory serves me right. Someone should go look those up just for amusement.

A look at the Coors factor for 2004, courtesy of ESPN:

...........AB R HR RBI SB BA OPS
Home 270 56 24 68 0 .322 1.057
Away 270 38 13 42 5 .244 .775

Gotta like those wheels on the road.
