Blockbuster Trade Makes Cubs a Lock in 2011

Wrigley_field As those driving around Chicago have probably already noticed, there are new billboards advertising some of the team's latest acquisitions, including Derek Jeter and Albert Pujols.  The New York Times calls the billboards a stumble, but they misunderestimate the savvy of the Cubs' leadership.  Fans looking for those lovable losers this season will be disappointed by the new starting line-up.  

Here it is:

1. Ichiro Suzuki, RF
2. Derek Jeter, SS
3. Marlon Byrd, CF
4. Albert Pujols, IB
5. Aramis Ramirez, 3B
6. Joe Mauer, C
7. Chase Utley, 2B
8. Alfonso Soriano, LF 
9. Cliff Lee 

Barry Bonds has announced that he will come out of retirement to pinch hit on occasion, in keeping with his down-to-earth low-key style.
