Interesting signing. Ankiel, Pods, Guillen, DeJesus. Intriguing outfield. The years and money, if comparable to Nady and Dye, would be really nice. Gomes should be half of that. Ankiel will play the superior defense among them, by a long shot, but he had a down year last year with the stick. I am not surprised by the years or dollars, but the team is intriguing. I would have thought that a contender would have taken a shot at him. Nice LH stick off the bench. I guess in this case he will get to start, which is probably what he wanted. I was never really certain why the Cubs were even interested. Whoever the Cubs sign will need to be that RH role player against lefties when Fuke doesn't play. Or at least I thought that was the idea. All the clamor for Fuld also doesn't make sense, for the exact same reason.
