If it's a good deal, I bet they do. Agree to disagree. I just don't think they give up a draft pick AND pay him a lot.

If we had Sanchez in tow, I'd say yeah, get Bourn on a good deal and field a playoff contending team right now. However, Bourn alone with the loss of a pick has more downside than upside. We lose the pick, which is absolutely critical and we are still not good enough to contend. In the end, Bourn's elite production as a table setter just inflates the stats of Rizzo and possibly later, someone like Olt, driving the price on their long term deals up.

I feel you on wanting to make a big signing though. It's very tempting, but we have a great plan in place and as soon as next year, we should be in on everyone.

Apparently, Sanchez' agent played a game with us. Furthering my disdain for agents.

I prefer Gyorko to Olt, once again. And the Padres have been rumored to be making him available for a top of the rotation arm.

I like that he plays 2nd and 3rd, giving us a better chance of keeping all the stars in the infield.

Got to see Gyorko live a couple times when he was at WVU. He's really good.

Not really surprised here that Sanchez stayed with the Tigers. Better team in just about every way in a division they seem poised to stay on top of for at least a little while, so the only thing that would be better for him would be more money. So he used the Cubs to up the ante and get the best of both worlds from his perspective, staying on a better team and getting richer in the process.

Until the Cubs become contenders, expect stuff like this to continue.

It'll be nice when the shoe is on the other foot, that's for sure, Cubs poaching talent, especially home grown talent, from other teams with our millions.

Wow awesome game...Butler wins! I thought he was going to miss that floater...it looked off but got a good roll.

Butler knocks off #1 Indiana! And hey, Illinois win looks better now as well.

Horrible game. Bad free throw shooting. Bad rebounding. Awful coaching (call timeouts, that's why you get 5 of them!). Zeller was outplayed inside.

Just a crap game. They happen, weren't going undefeated anyways.

Wish I had a Hawks game tonight to avert my attention to...

If you listen closely, you can hear the soft rustling of jackets all over the state of Indiana being reversed back to ND

Sloppy win but I'll take it. They've shown up against all the good teams they've played so far so I can't complain.

Huge game against Mizzou coming up.

Ah, the game that once a year serves as a reminder than we do share a border with Missouri.

Doesn't mean anything to me. Iowa is west of where I live, Indiana east, Wisconsin south. I forget about the state of Missoura.

Don't know why you'd think Cubs/Cards would mean anything to me to begin with.

I thought you were talking about Chicago fans as a whole. My mistake. But I thought all of us hated the Blues; I do at least.

While I hate the Blues, that really doesn't have anything to do with their city... If that makes sense.
