2009 Fantasy Baseball: The Top Five Chicago Cubs

In total, the Chicago Cubs have a strong team for fantasy players. Alfonso Soriano holds the top spot due to his still-present SBs. In just 453 ABs, Soriano managed 29 HRs and 19 SBs. The question now is whether one can safely assume he can stay healthy a full season and allow fantasy players to project a 40/30 season in 2009. At 33 years of age, I am uncomfortable doing so.

The toughest spots to fill were the #4 and #5 holes. The Cubs' starting pitchers are very good with a wart or two. Ryan Dempster threw a ton of innings. Rich Harden is gossamer frail. Carlos Zambrano's Ks dropped precipitously, and Ted Lilly is Ted Lilly. Amongst them all, Harden has the chance to be the best fantasy pitcher on the squad, but shouldn't he throw more than 140 innings?
