The Cubs try to aquire a leadoff hitter, to replace Theriot.
I'm confused. First you say Theriot will be fine, then you say the Cubs...um...what does that last post mean? Wait a minute...were you PUI?
Anyhoo, I agree with lbblue. I think Theriot's a nice SS and bottom of the order guy, but Roberts at leadoff and 2B over Derosa would be a significant boost to Chicago's lineup. I would much rather have Roberts at 1 and Theriot at 8 than Theriot at 1 and Derosa at 8.
The Cubs were triyng to aquire Roberts as an upgrade over Theriot as a leadoff hitter and not as a defensive upgrade over DeRosa at second!!
BTW I would much rather have Hanley Ramirez at short and hitting leadoff. Or Ichiro as CF and hitting leadoff. Vlad at RF. Utley at second.
And thriot, pie, and derosa on some other team.
