The Cubs haven't had as active of an off season as they have the past few years which in my mind is a good thing. Less moves means less errors that need fixing. While not everyone is happy about everything (I'll be the first to yell and scream about Kerry Wood), the hole is "fixed", at least in the eyes of Jim Hendry. So what does that leave for the Cubs to do this off season? We have a pretty solid lineup, a few candidates in the system for the fifth starter, and the 'pen is pretty set after the acquisition of Vizcaino. I imagine whoever doesn't make the rotation out of Gaudin, Marshall, and Shark will make up the rest of the spots, and maybe someone like Kevin Hart makes it.
So I ask you, what else should the Cubs REALISTICALLY do? Seems nuts to try and trade for someone like Hermida at this point. Is the upgrade over Johnson/Pie/Fukudome worth a chunk of our farm system? And then what do you do with Johnson/Pie/Fukudome?
We all know about Peavy and Roberts. I ask that you leave those two off of this discussion.
