This changes the whole equation. With the Proodbradux fully intact, I think the Cubs are a 95-win team. They could still use some bullpen help (I'm rooting for Houston Street to be so unhittable that Beane decides to unload Dotel before the deadline), and the offense is going to be very hit-and-miss, even when Nomar is raking, but nobody can match their rotation--nobody!!!!
Dempster was very good in his last start too. If he can just post 200 innings and a 4.50 ERA, this staff will be by far the best in baseball. Just you wait and see!
Oh, Cubs, I love you so much...
