I am happy about this. I did not want to see Uribe in cubbie blue with his weird blond chin beard.
I wonder if this opens the door to Rich Aurilia. I think Aurilia would be a nice fit, a poor man's Derosa and everything I read said Aurilia was heading back to SF. With Uribe heading to the Bay Area, this might mean Aurilia to the Cubs. It also sounds like Bako will be signed soon.
