Cubs to sign Burnitz to replace Sammy


The Sammy Sosa deal is expected to become official as soon as tomorrow. When it does, the Cubs will announce the signing of free agent outfielder Jeromy Burnitz.


Burnitz will receive a one-year, $5 million contract with a mutual option for 2006 that could raise the total value to $11.5 million. However, the Burnitz signing is contingent on the Sosa trade going through without a hitch.


Burnitz, who is taking a physical Wednesday in Phoenix, had 37 home runs and 110 RBI for the Colorado Rockies in 2004.


But there are some worries that Burnitz's success may be overly tied to playing his home games at Coors Field; his on-base/slugging percentage was 1.057 at home last season and .775 on the road.
