Watch the Cubs for a day or two and you realize you are watching a team that lacks guts, heart and whatever the kids call it today. While Corey Patterson and Michael Barrett may have become fan favories signing autographs and posing for pictures. They are not the type of players that winning ballclubs are built around. Barrett and Patterson are great for Cubs Care, yet bad for winning ballgames.

Patterson has become the modern day Shawon Dunston, a player that may "one day develop"-when you are 83. Barrett is as overrated as they come. The Cubs don't even trust him handling The Franchise. They would rather have Henry Blanco catch. I would like to see Hank catch Prior, Maddux, and Dempster. Sit Barrett on the bench where he belongs.

Let's see what happens on Sunday,
