The Cubs (yes, the Damn Cubs - MY Team for once) signed a player actual other teams were interested in. Kosuke Fukudome!

This guy is going to be great in the Majors. Has a Canon for an arm, hits well, can actually walk when needed - and a right fielder. Soriano in Left, Fukudome in right, Felix Pie in Center. I am officially excited. My only concern is that he had an injury last season.

and in other news:

Prior Non-tendered - too bad, the guy just couldn't come back - hope he gets no takers and comes back for another try and a lower price.

So no one wanted Alfonso Soriano last year?

Somewhere in here there is a joke about the fact a Japanese player according to your post has a camera for an arm.

As Mariotti points out, he comes to us well versed in being a Cub, what with coming off a season shortening injury, surgery, and oh-by-the-way, his team won the championship while he was out with an injury.

I have not been watching Sportscenter recently, so I haven't heard his name pronounced.

Please tell me it isn't fuck you do me.

I was watching PTI last night and they had his name on their little sidebar. I was like "What is the Fuck You Dome?" I didn't know it was a dude's name. The Eagles and Giants play outdoors so I didn't know what Dome they were talking about.

I believe the "u" is pronounced as a long vowel:

Fukudome --> Foo Koo Do May

I'm not sure if the ending is May or Me, but I'm pretty certain about the rest.

Edit: According to this, the official pronunciation is KOH-skay foo-koo-DOUGH-may

That's an interesting way to capitalize that on a wrestling message board...

John Dewan (owner of Baseball Info Solutions and co-publisher of ACTA Sports) used the Fukudome signing as the focus for his stat of week (statoftheweek.com).

Bottom line: Fukudome comps similar offensively to Tadahito Iguchi, meaning his offensive skills set fits perfectly with Chicago's needs. Which makes this a good signing for the Cubbies.
