    If he can stay healthy not a bad pick-up I think.

    If he were a pitcher he'd be done for sure. I don't know what a TJ surgery does to a hitter but that's what he's needed for if he can produce like he had in 2007 and 2008.

    I remember that Luis Gonzalaz had Tommy John at some point, but I don't remember how better or worse he was coming off of it.

    Eh, they could have done worse I guess.

    I'm still skeptical of how this team as it stands right now without a couple bold trades or signings is going to make the playoffs. Even if Soto and Soriano rebound from a bad season, Lee and A-Ram stay healthy, Byrd hits as well as he did last year, and the pitching can stay healthy there are still a ton of "ifs" that need to happen without a hitch to even think about the playoffs. The roster is starting to age, if they don't make a deep run this year its about time to blow it up and start a youth movement I think.


    Go Cubs Go!

    What else is there? I think you named the main issues from last year. If all those things go the way they are supposed to, I think they'll be alright. I'm just curious what you think. The only other issue I could see is having a consistant 5th starting pitcher. I'm not comfortable with Gorzelanny or whoever in there.

    Re: Cubs Sign Nady

    Isn't pitching always the main concern anyway. That's what helps you win those 1-0 or 2-2-0 ballgames. Pitching has always been the struggle. We don't have a clear Ace and our #2 can't keep his anger under control long enough to be effective all year.

    the year he hit 50 HRs he could barely throw in to the cut off.
    Was that before or after the surgery?

    Re: Cubs Sign Nady

    SI.com's Jon Heyman tweets that Nady will make $3.3MM in 2010 plus an additional $2MM in incentives tied to games played.

    I wonder how many games to get the 2 million

    The pitching hasn't been the problem (well, at least not the starting pitching).

    Not having a true ace hasn't been a problem over a 162 game season and I don't think it will be one this year.

    The offense has to step up though. Last year was pathetic.

    Re: Cubs Sign Nady

    This is a bad move... why don't we just resign Matt Stairs... (ie: a corner outfielder who is a VERY streaky, mediocre hitter who shouldn't be a corner outfielder anymore because they're more suited for DH or 1B)
