Free agents are signing! Free Agents are signing! And they’re signing with the Cubs, of all teams.
First Kerry Wood re-upped with the Cubies (isn’t re-upped one of the all-time great words?). Then Aramis Ramirez joined him. Now Mark DeRosa has signed on with the world’s most depressing franchise.
Then there’s the Red Sox who, as Nick mentioned, are chasing Julio Lugo and J.D. Drew. What a fun team that would make, eh? Wouldn’t you just relish the chance to chear for a team with Manny being Manny (skipping games), J.D. being J.D. (getting hurt and asking for more money) and Julio being Julio (hitting his wife and bitching about playing time)? Oh and don’t forget about Josh being Josh (getting blisters and picking fights) and Keith being Keith (wishing he were hunting instead of pitching).
