Yesterday, the Cubs signed Reed Johnson, who was released by the Blue Jays. Not a bad signing in my opinion, as the guy crushes lefties. He'll make a nice backup to Felix Pie. Unfortunately, this pretty much spells doom for Matt Murton's run with the Cubs. It's a pity as Thunder Matt will make a nice everyday outfielder or DH for another major league club. I'd love to say that we keep him, but the roster is cluttered enough, and the kid deserves the chance to play every day. Still, this sucks ass. Murton really deserved more of a chance with us then he got.
