God Dammit!

Well the Chicago Tribune is reporting that the Cubs are close to signing Cliff Floyd. Floyd (shown at left, doing what he does best, being injured) is said to likely platoon in LF with Thunder Matt Murton.

While Cliff will certainly give us some added depth to our lineup, this obviously chaps my ass since it could spell problems for Murton being in the starting lineup everyday. Let's hope Thunder Matt can come out of the gates with a hot start this Spring.

Cliff will undoubtedly give 100% to the Cubs, but his kidneys will only give us 50%. Lousy internal organs!

Oh, and thanks to Goatriders for linking to us today when they reported on this story. Whenever we get more than 100 hits, I have to figure something's up.
