Your detractors point out that you're 37 years old and in the waning days of your career. I recognize that your skills aren't what they were 10 years ago, but I don't expect you to be the ace in Chicago. Your return should be a reminder to Cubs ownership to treat Mark Prior more fairly than they did you a dozen years ago. You can also teach Kerry and Carlos how to assume the calm, tax accountant demeanor when they're losing their cool on the mound.
I know they'll put a Braves hat on you when you're inducted into the Hall of Fame someday, but here's to getting your 300th victory at Wrigley in a Cub hat on a friday afternoon in August. I'll pick August 27th vs. the Astros up against Roger Clemens. That works for me.
