not bad, but not quite a splash. Supposed to be starting 2B. Placeholder for Eric Patterson?

LOL... Mark DeRosa? Great timing for him to put up career year... Do Cubs fans have any faith left in Hendry?

No, but I like what DeRosa did last year. Not where I would want to see that $$$ go, but time will tell.

the one distinctly good thing i see in this is that it eliminates the need for 1 bench spot and you can add another regular MR to a squad that will likely need it.

you beat me to it.

derosa had a solid year last year, but that was basically the only time he has been productive. you'd be crazy to count on him to be anything more than a backup. crazier still when people like rich aurilia, loretta, durham, belliard, etc. are still available.

HAHAHAHA ;-D

Too easy. Why pick better 2B when you can scrape the bottom of the barrel? Excellent.
