Here is the big question now, who will the fans now fall in love with? We tend to like someone that is scrappy ;) .

Darwin Barney


Barney is the early clubhouse leader but he needs to fall off offensively this year to really qualify.

Schierholtz and Sappelt are too disliked this early, Soriano is in the same boat. DeJesus might qualify, but he is borderline at best.

Rizzo, Castro, Stewart are out. Navarro and Castillo are out.

That leaves Matt Szczur, Logan Watkins as a couple early favorites. Someone needs to play waaay over their head this year.

Until Szczur or Watkins move up (if they ever do) it will be Barney.

I say Navarro is my pick. Backup catchers are much like backup QBs, "If only they would play <insertscrappyplayerhere> more....."
Please don't feed the psychos.

I'll call your Koyie Hill and raise you a Damon Berryhill.

I can't wait until Darwin Barney is the biggest problem the Cubs have.

one way to clear this up is if either Lillibridge makes the team or we acquire Willie Bloomquist through a trade

Good point, Lillibridge is an early favorite for this title

One of these days I'll get around to scanning the x-rays from my tablesaw accident...

It's the ONLY thing about Koyie Hill that doesn't make me want to scream.
