Burnitz had a couple good months last year (April and June), and so did the Orioles, so I guess he'll fit in. He was a floating turd in the toilet of the Cubs season for the majority of the year though. He's a clearly declining player well past his prime.
You know what, though, I don't mean to hate Burnitz. I'm going to root for him. I have no choice. He seems like a nice guy and I don't blame HIM for this contract, I blame the moronic front office. I honestly don't think it's a good idea at all but I'll hope to be wrong.
In other news, the Expos signed that loser Ramon Ortiz and the Pirates signed Joe Randa.
