I've heard rumours of a swap of Cabrera and Gonzalez, so this wouldn't surprise me. Thank God Cabrera will finally be in a lineup that can produce.

Hmm... should I pick up Cabrera now? He is sitting on my FA and I am using Kaz Matsui right now.

:-? The Cubs have scored just 9 more runs than the Expos since the beginning of June. They are the most over rated offense in the majors.

I'd take the Cubs lineup over the Expos lineup any day. Alou, Aramis, Sosa, Lee, Patterson.......... much better than the Expos. The Cubs might have been slumping over the past month, but they're MUCH better than the 'spos. Even when they're slumping and without Aramis Ramirez they're scoring more runs than the Expos.

So would I, but don't be fooled into thinking he's going to a great producing, strong offensive club. The Cubs haven't been slumping. The runs they have hit in June and July on average is very similar to what they have hit all year.
