Well, it's nice to see you guys get in the spirit and put us ton top of the voting going on at Red Reporter for best baseball blog of 2005.
We appreciate the support and it's as much a vote for you guys as it is for us writers. Voting goes through the end of the year I believe.
- So we've heard some inklings of the Cubs pursuing Preston Wilson
and/or Marquis Grissom
. I suppose this is Hendry's plan to fill that righty bat on the bench or potential platoon-mate for Jones. I'd prefer a good player like Craig Wilson
, but there is another FA out there who could fill the bill for both Dusty and Hendry. He's a vet (37 next season), can mash lefties,
3 year splits versus lefties: .293/.403/.497
2005 versus lefties: .288/.370/.471
and he's very familiar with Wrigley Field and day games.
And I'm actually half-serious. But only half.
That's all I got for today, enjoy the weekend and have a Happy New Year. See you in 2006!!!
