He'll play half the season, each season, mark it. I hope I'm wrong though.

You aren't wrong.

The guy averages less than 100 games/year, and has been a DH.
The fact that he led the AL in OPS last year is the tradeoff.

He WILL get hurt, therefore platoon will be expected and in full effect.
I'm more worried about the fact that he is a complete loon.

It doesn't make up for DeRosa, which I think was completely retarded. He was solid across many positions.

Rumor is the Cub were not pleased with DRo's willingness to be completely candid with the media.

Like Epi said, he is a complete loon. I wonder how Lou is going to control this guy. Or maybe that is what he wants.

Yeah...and Moss was going to be a problem in NE. Let's see what happens first. The Cubs had to make this signing and I hope it works out.

Dude, Moss doesn't compare to Bradley. Bradley is just a nut, for real, tons of talent, but he's a nut and is injury prone. He busted out crying during a game last year.
