    how can you even say that the cubs are going to be close to contention next year? they have a LOT of holes to fill, not just at first base. carlos pena is a short term solution. he’s a career .230 something hitter and is only good for putting the ball out of the park. to be fair, he will probably succeed in wrigley field thanks to the prevailing winds and small dimensions of the park. but aramis ramirez is aging and has never been a spectacular defender, alfonso soriano is garbage in the outfield, they have no second baseman, and you can’t fool anybody by trying to say that tyler colvin is a viable right field option. not to mention that geovany soto is a one year wonder. BUST. the pitching staff is in shambles; outside of carlos zambrano and MAYBE randy wells, they have nobody. and their bullpen is in much worse shape than the white sox’. the sox have a few holes to fill as well but they are much closer to the playoffs than the cubs. the sox are lacking some solid back-end of the bullpen protection, but their pitching staff should be really good behind buehrle, floyd, danks, jackson, and peavy when healthy. they also have chris sale waiting to compete for the 5th starter’s spot in spring training. if they can move carlos quentin for some relief help, they should be really good this year. what is this kid writing about? get a new sports writer ASAP!!!!
