assuming Yes is better, this team is much better than last, many more left handed bats, power all over the board, solid back ups at all positions, the only place i am worried about most is the Pen. as long as the pen can hold onto leads late in the game then the team will be fine. oh yah and KEEP FUKUDOME OUT OF THE LINEUP!!!

Better but worried about Hardin- I hope we can add a starter at the break to make a deep run into the playoffs.

Personally i think the bullpen will be one of the best in the league but i disagree with your assessment that this is a much better team than last year. I believe they are about the same. The bullpen is about the same although I think we are going to miss K-Wood. The starting lineup will be better with the addition of Bradley but this team is battling aging and it will be interesting to see how D-Lee and Soriano do this year as they add another year on to their bodies. The pitching rotation is very solid but it comes down to injuries. If they stay healthy they are a top 5, potentially top 3 rotation. One interesting question is the bench because they got significantly worse in that department. Although Hoffpauir can hit, he is horrible in the field (basically takes Ward's spot from last year). Gathright is a solid fielder, speed guy who struggles with the bat (basically taking Pie's role from last year). Hill is significantly worse than Henry Blanco which is a downgrade and unfortunate because we could have signed him for the same amount we did with Bako who we just got rid of. Overall, this bench is weaker because of the lack of versatility in the backup infield positions. If you believe that Miles or Fontenot can play any position other than second base adequately you are very mistaken. With the loss of DeRosa, they lose a solid backup third base option and we are screwed if Aramis Ramirez is out for any extended length of time. This is why Corey Koskie/Rich Aurilia were interesting because they would have fit in very nicely but unfortunately neither signed with the Cubs. These problems aside, this is a very good team that should run away with the division but it does have its fair share of lingering questions that need to be answered come opening day.

I voted yes. The cubs are a better team on opening day 2009 than they were on opening day 2008.
