I Guess There’s Only One Thing Left To Do……

As I sat stewing in my juices last night, I read a comment by Rich Hill on Cubs.com.

"It’d be nice to win a World Series for him."

Santo_and_williams He’s right.  Screw the Veteran’s Committe, Screw the BBWAA, and most of all screw Joe Morgan. It reminds me of that scene in the movie Major League, when the team finds out that they were picked to lose games and would be released at the end of the season.  Tom Berringer’s character says

"I guess there’s only one thing left to do"

Corbin Berson’s character say "What’s that"

"Win the whole f@*ckin ‘ thing."

That’s where I’m at. I’m angry, I’m pi$$ed, and I want to win.  I want the Cubs to win for the Cubs fans, for Ronnie, and for themselves.  Let’s do this.  Right here, right now.

Marquis2 It starts tomorrow with the first spring training game of the year.  New addition Jason Marquis will face off against the Giant’s prize catch of the off season, Barry Zito.  The lineup for the Cubs looks like this

1st-Alfonso Soriano in center

2nd-Matt Murton in left

Soriano_sliding_1 3rd- Derrek Lee at first

4th-Aramis Ramirez at third

5th-Michael Barrett catching

6th-Jacque Jones in right

7th-Mark DeRosa at second

8th- Cesar Izturis at short

9th-Jason Marquis pitching.

What do you guys think?  This is pretty much the lineup that fans wanted to see, and Pinella will get his first look at it tomorrow.  Hopefully Matt "Big Red" Murton puts on an impressive show.  It would be nice to see a good contact hitter in the Derosa_cedeno number two spot, get some guys on base for Lee and Ramirez.  I am also interested in seeing how Lee and Izturis bounce back from their injuries.  It will also be fun to see new Cubs Alfonso Soriano and Mark DeRosa hit.  Wouldn’t it be something if Soriano started out with a lead off homer off Zito?  I also want to see if Marquis is ready to bounce back this year after a rough 2006.

Any way, it should be fun to see some baseball.

Finally, the end of winter!

Go Cubs!
