Its been 100 years

I dont care who we have to give up to get this thing done. I have heard about curses for too long. I say sign Garcia- what do we have to lose. Pitch him in the minors to see what he has got. Heck, we are worried about Sori's hand- Bonds wants to play. I say sign him too. Ward can be used as a poker chip in this thing too, especially with AL teams. How this guy isnt making 8 mill a year to DH for somebody blows my mind. Hank White makes 2 mil more than Ward- who in the heck is Wards agent.

If we ever thought about signing Bonds i would seriously contemplate not watching any more Cubs games until he was gone. Come on Skip lets look at the facts, we are getting it done right now.

Barry Bonds in Cubbie blue WTF are you thinking? why not re-sign Sammy Sosa?? I think I'd rather see Sosa back in Cubbie blue then Barry Bonds and everyone knows how much love I have for Sosa.

Bonds would be a waste of a roster spot, until the September call ups. Ward already is just the "bench guy".... and Ward's fielding is limited, and Bonds would be even more limited than that because of his bad knees.

Although.... imagine the lineup with his name in it.......

Bonds is strictly a DH at this point in time. Plus, he is off the juice, and in his 40s. No way do we sign him

It really doesnt matter who you have- thats what makes baseball so great- you could have the best player at every position and still lose if you run into a hot pitcher such as Josh Beckett in 2003. As far as Sosa goes there 84 I would take him in the lineup tomorrow. As far as Bonds being a DH, what is Soriano, Adam Dunn, Carlos Lee. Of course Dunn and Lee play on bad teams, so I guess I should bring up Manny Ramirez and Eric Hinske. Bonds is the greatest hitter ever.

I think pitching will be hard to get via trade. We just don't have a ton of prospects that teams want.

As far as adding a bat, if Fukudome was content playing center, Jason Bay would be a good pick up. Although, then Bay or Soriano would need to move to right field. Or how about Jack Wilson? Jack Wilson would fit right in this line up very nice.

You would have said the same thing about Edmonds 2 months ago. WTF AM I THINKING? Im thinking about ringing up - you know actually winning the world series. We can all talk about winning the division, a playoff series- that crap doesnt matter. Its all about the ring.

Wilson is definately better defensively than Theriot.

As far as Garcia goes, I heard about a month ago that the Yankess were taking a serious look at him. If that's the case signing him might not be so easy. I'm pretty sure you were just joking about Bonds so I'll just leave that one alone.

I agree that being content with the team we have isn't the way to go, but I'll put my trust in the fact that Hendry has fairly consistently made the best deals he could with what we have. Hopefully that's enough.
