The Lineup

I posted a little piece yesterday regarding the Cubs's outfield over at Goatriders, so I don't want to get into that issue. Suffice to say, we are short one right fielder and speculation is rampant as to who the Cubs might get.

I'm sure this issue has been addressed on dozens of other blogs and websites, but one more time can't hurt. The Cubs' lineup to date (as construsted by Jason):


The first four are pretty solid, but things get a bit bleak after that...shades of 1998.

We need a right fielder, that much I'm sure of. I don't really care if he is a power hitter or not, I'd just like him to be a *good* hitter. In fact, if we could get one of the solid OBP types, like Wilkerson or Bradley, I would really be happiest. I like my bases clogged.

Then there is the issue of Shortstop. I'd really be happiest with Tejada, but that is probably a pipe dream. On the other hand, I never thought they would get Nomar, either. If not Tejeda, the options begin to get pretty lame. Lugo? No thanks.

There wasn't much content to this post, I know, but I really just wanted to get Dubya off the top of my page. I'm sure at some point I'll follow this up with a more in depth look at the Cubs team as a whole. Consider this a mere summary with more to follow.

That's funny, cause Dusty HATES his bases being clogged. I'm quite sure he has no idea what OBP stands for. Watch him bat pierre 8th just for the hell of it.
