The Hardball Times - Five Questions

Over at The Hardball Times, there are five questions posed about the Cubs, which are then answered by the article's writer.  Here are the questions:

  1. Dusty was rusty; Lou, too?
  2. Is mediocre the new good? [about Lilly and Marquis]
  3. Who is Alfonso Soriano?
  4. How many games will Ryan Theriot play at second base?
  5. Can the Cubs really expect a good season without the usual spring caveat: "If Wood and Prior stay healthy"?
It's worth looking at the entire article, but my favorite line from it has to be this: Once they signed Soriano, the Cubs examined their roster and failed to find Andruw Jones or Jim Edmonds. So, on March 1, Soriano stood in center field for the first time in his major league career as the Cubs played their first 2007 exhibition game.

Anyway, it's a nice little article that dissects some of the questions we have about the Cubs going into the season.  I liked it.  Hopefully some of it can stimulate discussion.  =)
