Cubs Hope Fukudome Will Bring Championships With Him

Posted by Ace Staff on December 20th, 2007

Kosuke Fukudome’s Chunichi Dragons just finished winning the 2007 Japan Series and Konami Cup Asia Series 2007. Now, Fukudome is joining a team that hasn’t won a championship in 100 years. The Cubs bid of $48 million along with the storied history of the franchise lured in the Japanese right fielder. Usually a prolific and consistent hitter, Fukudome’s 2007 campaign was limited by injuries. The Cubs organization is convinced that this is only temporary and that he will provide a solid bat in their revitalized ’08 lineup.
