    I really hope Hoff can be a factor this year.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Nope...Kerry Wood is already having back problems for the Indians...he should be fine, but it's just a shame what has happened to him throughout his career...

    Re: Cubs take spring opener!

    I pointed out to a friend today that the Cubs won their Spring opener...his reply, "last year the Lions won all their preseason games".

    Touche...

    Anyway, GO CUBS

    Because there weren't enough threads about the Cubs today.

    Me too...all this guy has done is hit, hit, and hit some more for the last two years whether it's been in Iowa, spring training, or in Chicago.

    It's just a really tough situation for him...he's not a natural outfielder at all, and they already have one defensive liability in the outfield with Soriano....plus Lee is an everyday guy at first base.

    Let's trade Lee for another pitcher, while we can get something for him.

    Re: Cubs take spring opener!

    This is the year, this has to be the year! I'm not a Cubs fan, but I am an Iowa State fan so I know what it's like, and I'm not making fun... well not too much fun.

    Don't get me wrong, I like Lee (even though he appears to be on the downslope)...he's still a durable gold glove first baseman that will hit .280+ and strike out a lot less than most first baseman, but his power and production are diminishing big-time...it'd be nice if they could let Hoffpauir get some at bats somehow...

    Re: Cubs take spring opener!

    Do some people really get excited when their team wins a spring training game?
