If the Cubs get Pudge, baseball's all-time greatest catcher, they'll immediately become my pick to win the World Series. They'd have a great lineup from one to nine, with two great starting pitchers (Prior and Wood) and one really good one (Carlos Zambrano). The 'pen will be better with LaTroy Hawkins on board, and Corey Patterson, who would have been an All-Star last year without his injury, will be back. There's good reason for Northsiders to be excited this year.
