BUTTERFLIES AND RAINBOWS!!!!! JP611 Just called me an ecstasy user!!!! WTF!!!
Welcome Tyler Kolek or Brady Aiken or Carlos Rodon if not one of them say hello To Alex Jackson.
If the Cubs go into the season with Schierholtz starting in RF and DeJesus in center, a plus is that they can set their lineup to L/R/L/R all the way down.
1. David DeJesus (CF) - L
2. Starlin Castro (SS) - R
3. Anthony Rizzo (1B) - L
4. Alfonso Soriano (LF) - R
5. Ian Stewart (3B) - L
6. Wellington Castillo / Dioner Navarro (C) - R / S
7. Nate Schierholtz (RF) - L
8. Darwin Barney (2B) - R
Pretty mediocre overall, but the handedness thing is cool.
I seriously believe the mentality most fans towards Garza is that he owes us prospects.
Levine's answers to some questions are so non-committal/non-informal/generic that it's just reinforcing my dislike for beat writers.
Texas might want Soriano with Garza, they could use the offense, but i think he might be expensive. O RLY?
Btw: I want Martin more than I want Olt from the Rangers.
If Schierholtz is actually our everyday RF'er and DeJesus is in CF I'll cry.
Am I seeing this right? We play the Rangers in April?
That's ****ing weird

Has anyone in the forum seen any recent updates on Gerardo Concepcion? I know he had a serious bout of mononucleosis? I haven't heard anything and was wondering what the projections for him might be this year? Will he reamin at Peoria or go back down a level to establish stamina and confidence? Will he be a ST invitee? Inquiring minds want to know.
People are making a little too much of Schierholz as the "starting" RF'er. He's put up some fine splits against RHP recently and is a fairly decent defensive player. He'll be the starter only in name, not in practice, considering he'll probably see little-to-no run against LHP. You pair him with a Sappelt and you don't have a great RF, but you certainly have a very serviceable pair.
People ask me, "Why here? Why Kentucky?", I said "Why not"? It can be done here. It will be done here. Lay the foundation. Recruit and develop. Prepare to win. Day by day. Play by play. A new era of high performance. Why Kentucky? Why not? -Mark Stoops
