they didnt trade him off. they totally fucked him over. They should have resigned him before his last year but they chose to hold out, then he won the cy young award, then he bailed cause cubs management tried to hose him.

You Sox fans are just jealous because the Cubs made alot of good moves in the off season , while the Sox twiddled their thumbs and cried poor.

Get over it already!

Actually, Maddux was quoted as saying that... It's kind of a bummer, but it will be nice to see him in a Cubs uniform again! Let's go Cubbie Blue!

Did you also hear that the Cubbies have been picked as the favorite to take it all this year? Find a Sox fan and kick him in the groin!

Have the Cubs been playing games over the winter and winning already? I'd be excited too if I were a cub fan but there are still plenty of holes in that team and the fact that they haven't had back to back winning seasons in like 33 years. You guys also have that "Goat" curse.

What's that supposed to mean?? You don't think the 5 man rotation we have now is kick ass? You find me a FIVE MAN ROTATION - 5 guys that are better than this rotation. Good luck.

how did this turn into a cub bashing thread? come on guys, I was just excited about picking up a great pitcher. Should be a good season, and no matter who you are a fan of you have to admit that Maddux going to the cubs is MUCH better for baseball than the Yankees signing him.

Oh yeah... Tickets go on sale Feb 27th... Tickets will be limited to 4 ticks per game, and I think a max of 40 games. So, it doesn't do anything to camp out at the ballpark like it used to. Internet is where it's at! Get 'em before the brokers get their hands on them!

It was a reminder to Vcook...I'm a Cub's season ticket holder. Me and a few others are picking our games soon. I'm letting Vcook in on some action

nope, and they definetly arent won in internet arguments! I was just referring to the general direction non-cubs fans seemed to be taking the thread. its all good, for what its worth I hope the sox do well, just not against the cubs.

I've got Upper Deck Box - Row 1

I think they increased from $26 to about $30 / per ticket...depending on the time of year and opponent.

Parking passes stayed the same ($15)

Maybe season tickets... Regular season tickets go on sale Feb 27th.

And why's it gotta be only Vccok that gets in on the action??
