I've been waiting for an excuse to moon Steve Garvey since October 6th, 1984.
If you don't know why, go here.
That's a little negative, so let me start again.
In competition with each other over Japanese right fielder Kosuke Fukudome, the Cubs finally outbid the San Diego Padres last night and signed him to a 4-year deal.
It seems like that's like the 1st time the Cubs have beaten the Padres at anything in about 3 years, and of course I have deeper issues with the Pads related to 1984 and not limited to Steve Garvey.
(I just really really dislike the Padres...)
So, after much talk and anticipation, Kosuke is the big fish Cub GM Jim Hendry went after and caught.
I found out about it on LOHO about 11 last night - those guys are quick!
It's alot of dough, but I think Fukudome's a giant leap in outfield talent compared to last year's right fielders.
Plus, it's cool to have that global thing going on with my favorite team.
