Cubs for Breakfast

Cumann Daorchluiche Cubs na Chicago

Wednesday, February 02, 2005

Sammy Sosa’s deal is expected to be finalized today, after which the Cubs apparently plan to announce the signing of Jeromy Burnitz to a one-year deal with a second year mutual option. Cubs fans will want to know if that’s the end of the off season as far as roster moves are concerned, and I predict that Jim Hendry will say just that. But he always says he’s content with “the roster we have now”, and remember Greg Maddux was signed only a day before spring training in 2004, so I’ll continue to look out for news and rumors on the ever-cooling hot stove.
