Happy to be in the Finals

I have made it to the finals of the Best Cubs Blog 2003. Go over to the View From the Bleechers to vote in the finals. This year I have a few more things I would like to do with this site. I plan for a new look and longer pieces.

I am happy to be in the finals, but I do not expect to win. To be listed in the top 10 is honor enough. I have voted for who I think should win.

I have been putting off on what I think about all the Greg Maddux talk, but I just do not see us signing him. I think he could teach our guys a lot, but in the end it will not happen. Call it money or even just roster space, but I would give it a 10% chance. Who knows, if the Angels can sign Vlad then I guess the Cubs can sign Greg back to Chicago.

Sandberg waits Again

Well, Ryno has to wait another year to get in the hall. Sandberg finished with 61.1% this year and was third on the ballot. Depending on who is on next year's list, Ryno could get what he needs for induction.

Welcome to the Year of the Cubs?

Could this finally be the year that the Chicago Cubs win it all? Who knows, but at least we should compete for the title again. I guess that this year would be as good as any other to win it all.

Not much news to report, but with a little more than a month before pitchers and catchers report I think the Cubs have one major move left that has not been made. Now the key is what is that move? I am not sure if it will come in the form of hitting, starting pitching or even more bullpen help. So far Jim Hendry has done a good job of making some changes. There is one more move out there that will make the Cubs that much better.

Well, Happy New Year. Updates will come when I can. My Alabama Crimson Tide are off to an 8-2 start in basketball and if you watch much college basketball, then you can look for me on TV at U of A homegames. I sit on the front row, so look out. If any readers here are at SEC schools then give me a shout, because I will be visiting your school pretty soon.
