1. Sign Nomar or, if he won't accept a cheap incentive-laden deal, sign Furcal. 2. Sign Giles. 3. Pick up Walker and Williamson's options. 4. Sign Millwood unless we're sure Jerome is ready to be the 5th starter. 5. Do everything possible to sneak Jose Macias out the door before Dusty notices. Neifi...

I was happy to see the Red Sox win the WS last year but in general, I have had it with Boston sports PERIOD! I'm sick of hearing about the Pats and Red Sox to the point where I'm starting to see why it was a good thing for them not to win it for so long. Bottom line is the most pathetic sports team...

Seriously, how do you not ready yourself for a squeeze every single time there's a runner on 3rd with less than 2 outs against STL? They've run the squeeze approximately 803,356,342 times this season.

The most hilarious thing about that is that the White Sox should have been the ones being the victim of that joke. A week before he made that gesture, the Tribe was right on the Sox's heels and everyone was saying the Sox would lose it. The Tribe, in my opinion, would have won the division if Sizemo...

They also said it once for Bill Mueller, the 2003 AL batting champ. But for Derrek Lee?? That's iffy.

It also says the Cubs are optimistic that Larry will return. I don't see why he'd leave the Cubs for a team like Detroit, even if his buddy Leyland is there.

I am interested in the playoffs, but it took until midnight last night for a team I want to win to finally win a game (the Angels). I'm also growing more and more disgusted with the Red Sox's efforts to ensure a White Sox title. I wonder what the Yankees/Angels will do to help out the Sox? Every oth...

I agree with the most here, this one was a funny dig at White Sox fans. The best part is that if the Red Sox stuff weren't there, this could easily have been written by a Cubs fan.

My most hated White Sox fan: Mayor Daley. At least Bernie Mac didn't try to get Wrigley condemned.

I liked Derrek a lot in 2004 too and that year he was at best the Cubs' 3rd best offensive player. As long as he doesn't completely stop hitting I will always like Lee.

We'll find out this offseason. Zambrano is arbitration eligible I believe, and will probably be getting a lot closer to double digit millions next year.

Today has been terrible. Not only have the Bosox and Padres lost but the White Sox soundly beat on the Red Sox. And now the Yanks are winning. Why not just have the Cubs go 0-162 and actually kill me?

Derrek Lee...the reason I still paid attention when the Cubs were down to the Reds 7-2 in that magical game in April. :D And the reason I kept paying attention even after it was clear we weren't going anywhere. Thanks for making me smile even when there was very little to keep my spirits up, Derrek.

My goals for the Cubs this off-season: 1. Giles (the lefty protection for Derrek Lee that we thought Burnitz could be) 2. Furcal (an actual leadoff hitter??? Who'da thunk it?) 3. Millwood* (won the AL ERA title and since Burnett is out there will probably not be too overpaid) * - if the Cubs can't f...

I'll risk the flak from everyone by picking Andruw Jones. Stats aside, he carried the Braves through a very tough stretch this season. And I'm pretty sure he did it without a consistent 30-homer guy protecting him in the lineup. With all due respect to Derrek Lee's and Albert Pujols's great seasons,...
