Cubs Win WS in 07

I certainly agree that the Cubs won't win with their current lineup. Saying that, I think the Cubs need to look to 2007 to win it all. With these key additions.

Keep Prior. Don not trade for Tejada.

Trade for Barry Zito...NOW! Before he hit the FA market.

Kerry Wood has a mutual option after the 06 season. DO NOT pick up that option.

Outbid the Cards and Yanks for Mark Mulder. Him and Carlos Lee will both be FA after the 06 season. That will be the LF with power we would like to have and another all star caliber pitcher.

Rotation:
Zambrano
Prior
Zito
Mulder
Williams (I think we could live with him looking at the rest of the rotation)
(Did not pick up Wood's option and I imagine Maddox will retire)

Lineup:
Pierre
Walker
D. Lee
Ramirez
C. Lee
Jones
Barrett
Cedeno
pitcher

I know this might be wishful thinking but hey, I'm a Cubs fan. That's all we can do right? Keep hoping and wishing. Thoughts?
