Cubs sign So Taguchi to minor league deal

This according to ESPN.com ...

Quote:
Ex-Card Taguchi signed by Cubs
By Jayson Stark
ESPN.com


The Chicago Cubs have signed outfielder So Taguchi to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. Taguchi would earn $900,000 if he makes the team in spring training.

Taguchi spent all of last season as a backup outfielder for the Phillies, but was a disappointment, batting only .220, with no homers and three stolen bases, in just 91 at-bats. He went only 3 for 33 (.091) as a pinch-hitter.

However, Taguchi spent the previous six seasons playing in the NL Central with the St. Louis Cardinals, and he's a .280 lifetime hitter against the Cubs.

I've always liked Taguchi's value as a good bench player/spot starter over his career. He's always played solid outfield defense, and was more then solid at the plate. Unfortunately, Taguchi's age may have finally caught up with him(Turns 39 in July). Still, he's only signed a minor league deal. It's a low risk/solid return move by Big Jim.

I think with the sale of the team being pushed back, again, Jim's hands are now really tied. The announcement was supposed to be this past weekend, but Mr. Zell has decided to wait, yet again, to sell the team for a couple more months. Any major moves that my involve big bucks would have had to been approved by the new owners, and since that will not be now until at least Opening Day, I'm seeing the team having to wait until the trade deadline to make anymore big splashes.

Give him a lifetime invite just because of the big hit he had against the Brewers in the crazy Cards-Brewers game that helped the cubs clinch.

I sort of like the acquisition and I hope Taguchi makes it on the team. For some reason, I have always thought well of him. The man has two WS rings with two different teams, which can't be a bad thing. Plus, as Bims mentioned, it's a low risk deal.

If Hendry had kept Edmonds and Marquis, the Cubs would have had four members of the heralded world champion 83-win 2006 STL Cardinals.
