I was talking to my friends about this over dinner last night.
One asked the assemblage "Who is the best player on the team?"
I answered "Aramis Ramirez" I consider him the best all around player on the Cubs a step above DLee because of his power. If Lee's power returns he's better otherwise they even out.
Then someone asked "Who is the most important or worst person to lose on the team?"
I answered "Geovany Soto"
The reason I answered Soto is that he would be the hardest to replace if something happened to him. Catching is in very short supply right now and it's the one position on the field you can't take someone from somewhere else and see if they can handle it.
And Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I got a a pajamagram. Guys they're cool and your wife/girlfriend or whatever would love them!
