go reds !
you're right. and yes pitching and defense HELP win ball games but I give respect and admiration for the cubs front office uncharacteristically spendin some dough to improve their lineup.
Im not being a troll or negative but a healthy Derek Lee (circa 2005), re-signing Aramis Ramirez (after a monster year and could have made alot more money elsewhere), and now Soriano , batting in the middle of that lineup is probably the best in the NL outside of the NY mets.
You have contact, hit for average, and power from Lee
Power and Ribbies from Ramirez
Power, decent average (anywhere from .280-300), and SPEEED (!) from Soriano.
and if the Cubs are dumb enough, they'll let him play 2nd like he wants which leads them to have the best hitting infield in the NL
