Let me start by saying that I applaud the Cubs for the off season moves that they have made. It shows, albeit a misguided way, that they are trying to do something that has not been done in nearly a century. And that is win the series. I want to break down what has become my biggest conern with this team, defense. As we all are aware defense helps the pitching. So I would like to offer my thoughts on each position player. I will use SOM ratings for each position. One being the best, five being the worst.
Soriano CF - 4
Murton LF -4
Not exactly the defense of champions. I truly hope that with in a short period of (2 months) they make a move to shore up this defense. Because I truly believe this will be our down fall this year. Defense affects so much with regards to our pitching. Thoughts?
