Is Boras Believable?

Well if Boras is believable the Cubs are still in the running for Beltran. I don't believe it as much as I think he is trying to use them to get a higher price for Beltran, just as he did with Arod. I do hope that I am wrong because as I have stated in past I would love to have Beltran on the Cubs. Also the Cubs have been talking to Magglio Ordonez and he is said to be interested in signing a 1 year deal full of incentives. This would be a marvelous signing for the Cubs as long as his base salary not too high. Ordonez when healthy is one of the leagues most underrated players and would be a great addition to the Cubs lineup.

*Earlier this week the Cubs officially signed Todd Hollandsworth to a one year deal for $900,000. This is smart signing only if it means he is coming off the bench. There are rumors that he might be starting in the OF. This is so wrong for so many reasons. First it would hurt a bench that already is very weak and has almost no options off the bench. Secondly Hollandsworth has over the years proven that outside of COL he cannot be a starting OF. Lastly, there are much better options left for the Cubs in the FA market.
