I don't think the Cubs can win the central with Dempster as the closer and Floyd and Murton in the outfield. You can add Jones to that mix also. I think Hendry made a mistake standing pat. Also we don't have an experienced long man in the bullpen. Lately it looks like Lee, Floyd and Ramierz are just going through the motions. A lot of strikeout with runners on base for those 3. Eric Patterson swings at high outsied pitches just like his brother. Sorry for the half empty glass, but I just don't see it as half full.
