    Another interesting development is that by outrighting Richie Robinett to Iowa, and off the 40-man roster. That leaves 2 roster spots on the 40 man, so maybe Hendry has something in the works.

    We will take them if you take Fukodome and his contract off of our hands.

    No surprises there. Also remember Angel Guzman is out of options and is a long shot to make the opening day roster so there is yet another 40 man roster spot that will open up because I would be surprised if he is not claimed off waivers. He once was the top prospect in the system and still throws hard. A change of scenery could help him. I would not be surprised to see Vizcanio cut too despite his contract. Lou has made it known he isn't factoring salaries into who is on the roster, he wants guys that will get the job done.

    What do you think the starting rotation might look like?
    A bit of a shake up this year.

    It's already been set:

    1. Zambrano
    2. Dempster
    3. Lilly
    4. Harden
    5. Marshall

    Marshall was named the #5 starter last week which was the only spot in the rotation up for grabs.

    I hope Lilly and Marshall deliver. I must've missed Marshall's appointment, what do the latter innings look like? Set-up man and closer? Marmol...? etc..

    it has been confirmed that Vizcaino will be in the bullpen for the Cubs so there is no way he's getting cut

    Fukudome would probably start in CF for us.

    He probably would but there is no way the Cubs would or should do that trade.

    I was in Peoria, AZ last week and saw the Cubs / Mariners ST game. Hoff & Fox went back to back in the fourth. I know D Lee plays good defense, but he wasn't exactly a clutch hitter last season and I wonder if he's tradeable. IMO, Hoffpauir and Fox belong in Chicago, not Des Moines...

    Hoffpauir belongs, but he's more of a poor man's D Ward. He'll be a good sub for D Lee. Don't get me wrong, I like the guy, but there've been a lot of people that says he has holes in his swing... It's just a matter of time before pitchers start to pick him a part. IMO, if you're going to find a replacement for D Lee you're going to have to do it outside of the org.
