Cubs Signings

The Cubs have a couple of nice signings durng the last week. First, they locked up Kerry Wood through 2006 with an option for 2007 at a total cost of $32.5M. The option for 2007 is for $13.5M with a $3M buyout. Wood should be a workhorse although his mechanics scare me a little in contrast to Mark Prior's. The Cubs also signed Derrek Lee to a 3 year deal worth $22.5M. These next three years should be his prime years and then the Cubs can walk away. These are both core components for the next three years that should help ensure that they remain competitive.

The Cubs also announced the rotation:


I think it makes sense to put the workhorses first and third to help out the bullpen and to mix up the look you give to the other team. This should afford plenty of opportunities for 3 game sweeps!
