This week on the podcast, Jon and I are pleased to welcome Joe Aiello of the Big League Baseball Report and The View from the Bleachers. Joe is a die-hard Cubs fan, and he has high expectations for the 2007 season.After not seeing any blockbuster moves in the NLC outside of Chicago-land, Joe predicts 95 wins for the baby bears in 2007, 29 more than they enjoyed in 2006. He has a point about the lack of moves, but do Alfonso Soriano and Jason Marquis really equal a 44% increase in wins? I think Marquis alone is a negative percentage.
You’ll have to listen and judge for yourself. Thanks to Joe for agreeing to be on the show.
