The offseason report

I had an good talk with a fellow Cub's fan the other day and we differ on a few things.
First off, he thinks the Cubs are closer to winning than I do. It is not that I don't think the Cubs can win, but I think our holes are greater than our strengths.

Now Aramis Ramirez opted out of his contract. Here are somethings that I think the Cubs most do before we can win.

1. Resign Aramis. It is a must, because without him there is another hole that the Cubs must fill.
2. Find a bat: I would love a new SS or OF bat, but my guess is that we add on OF, that hopefully can play CF.
3. Find about three starting pitchers. One has to be a frontline starter. Then, another would need to be about a No. 3 type guy. Plus an added insurance type guy.

Until there is news, there is not much talk about.

The Demons are gone......thanks to drinking.

Well, we all know that McFail and Dusty "we don't trusty" are gone and Scott Lange and I would like to take credit.
We decided that being sober for the new Cubs' HBO special would not work. So, we started drinking and never stopped. The Drinking game was a great success. There were shots and many beers that were consumed. Here are a couple proofs for you:

1. Before the drinking game, the Cubs were losing to the Rockies. After, the Cubs beat the Rockies.

2. Before the drinking game, Andy McPhail was still president. After, he leaves the team. I am telling we should all drink more.

3. Before Dusty is Manger, after he is leaving the Windy City. Never to double switch Neifi ever again.

4. Before Wood and Prior are hurt,.......after Well the game is not a miracle worker.

My suggestion to all of you is create a game to get messed up and who knows, maybe the Cubs will have it going in 2007.
