Rebuilding my Cubs

Ok, so I live in Northern California and you likely care a whole lot more about the Giants, for good reason.  Heck, you might even like the A's and if so, good for you.  However, I am a Cubs fan and they have issues, BIG issues, and those issues are on my mind.  Lots of talk about them signing Prince Fielder but I think that would be a mistake, not because he isn't a great...
