    The "Big Boys" is a reference to the Cubs, not the ORG posters.

    Perhaps you haven't seen their payroll. It sure buys a lot of honey.

    It depends on who we have/get to replace them. I don't think it is out of the realm of possibilities that we could plug in Bruce in RF in 09 after getting his feet wet in 08 and sign a FA LF and both could give you 20-25 HRs (less than Dunn and Griffey woud) but: (1) hit for the same or better average than Griffey/Dunn; (2) give you better defense than Griffey/Dunn; and (3) give you better baserunning than Griffey/Dunn.

    All of that would mitigate against the run production gap. It may not eliminate it, but it would shrink it. If they can do all those things (which I recognize is a big if), then it is certainly possible that the 09 team can be improved after giving the young pitchers 08 to get their feet wet.

    As for Javy and Hatte, the same applies. It just depends on who is signed or promoted to replace them.
