This guy had so much potential at one time. I remember seeing him pitch when he was with the 'stros and I couldn't believe the stuff he had. So much for that I guess. ;-7

it's not a bad signing right? I mean it's his 2nd year off surgery so he should only be better

Depends on how much, but as long as it's cheap, it's not a bad deal at all.

Heck, if he stays healthy for half the year, it still wouldn't be bad.

Yeah def. not, especially for the Cubs. I think Piniella and his staff will be able to straighten out any problems mechanics wise he may have. I think he potentially could be a 10-12 game winner this year if he stays healthy.

so when he gets banged up, It is Lou Pinellas fault right?

if you guys were fortunate enough to hire baker as your skipper, you'd blame him for just about everything too. ;-D

The Cubs could have such a nasty power pitching rotation if all their pitchers were fully healthy and at their potential,

CZam
Prior
Miller
Wood

..if they all matched their best years in the same year thatd be a devestating rotation


It is not that the Cubs like injury-prone pitchers, it's that they are cheap and are trying to maximize profits. They try to catch lightning in a bottle and do just enough so that their fan have hope going into the season. Then in the winter and spring, they buy all those tickets for all summer long. Sure the Cub's payroll looks good but it always mid-range guys (Jaque Jones). When they should sign a thumper and a couple premium pitchers this year, they'll come to spring with a bunch of question mark pitchers Miller, Wood, Prior, and those youngsters. They'll spawn just enough hope but they'll still suck. The Cubs have been doing this crap for years! Joe
