    I agree and predict that the Cubs will win the World Series in the next 5 to 10 years.

    Susan,
    Based on what?  Theo.  Or the chance that it is about time.  I will bet Theo will be a bust as odds favor that outcome.  Look at the Red Sox signings and figure at least a few like that for the Cubs.  Theo did a very bad job the last four years.  Look at what he left.  How's that help the Cubs?

    Concord -

    Salty - respectable 1st season at age only 26 (young for a catcher)
    Agon - top talent
    Pedey - top talent
    Youk - top talent not drafted by Theo, but signed cheap and long
    SS - gap
    CC - looks bad, but gotta give it time
    Ells - MVP and FU to Softy...double win!
    JD - overpaid, but decent return
    Papi - what's to say?
    Lester
    Buch
    Beckett - either Theo DID make the deal to get him, or he DIDN'T give up the SS we've lacked
    Bard
    Paps

    Surely that's a decent CV (resume)....not to mention 2 national championships (plus Toronto)?

    Lackey
    Clement
    Jenks
    Drew (what return? That one month, or the 1 GS in five years people trumpet?)
    Renteria
    Lugo
    Cameron

    None of those signed for less than 8 mil per season (Maybe Jenks only got 2/12), none offered any real worth to the Sox.

    Theo's biggest success at signing a big name free agent?

    Daisuke Matsuzaka

    And there's not even a close second.

    Not talking trades, just high level FA signings. His track record is pretty horrible.

    Farm development? No complaints there.

    Trades? Highs and lows any GM should expect.

    But high level FA signings? Simply awful. Also consider he DIDN'T resign Victor Martinez or Beltre, who each helped their teams into the playoffs (and WS in Beltre's case) and his major league talent evaluation takes ANOTHER huge hit. Add Derek Lowe to that list, he's what Epstein WISHES Lackey actually was. SS has been one collosal failure. Nomar/Orlando Cabrera/Renteria/Alex Gonzalez/Lugo/Alex Gonzalez/Scutaro/Lowrie...yikes. Figure it out.

    Overall, solid GM, just don't let him sign ANYONE for more than 8per on the open market.
