The Cubs? Is their curse over?


Well, the Cubs made a huge step in improving their team for the future today. They signed Alfonso Soriano to an 8-year deal worth a $136 million. That is just a little chunk of change. It is actually the highest contract ever given by the Cubs. So, either this is going to be a great signing....or it will just add onto the curse of the goat. Here is what Soriano had to say when he learned that his contract was the fifth highest contract ever in baseball, "Like I said before, I'm not even thinking about the money." Yeah, we believe you Al.

The Cubs re-signed 3B Aramis Ramirez earlier to a 5-year, $75 million deal. It was the club's highest contract ever until Soriano's deal came through. But, it's not about the money. And why would it when you are making $16 million a year?

Both of those signings were big, but I don't think anyone would argue with me that the key signing this offseason for the Cubs is the re-signing of reserve catcher Henry Blanco; who is making a meager $2.625 million a year.

Also, Bama needs to fire their idiot coach.
