I'm not picking the Cubs to win the division but let's look at where some of their big money is going. Both Aramis Ramirez and Derek Lee were acquisitions from salary dumping teams. They were only available because of the money disparity in baseball.
Soriano puts up huge offensive numbers every year.
How good would the Cubs be without Lee, Ramirez and Soriano?
