Rafael Palmeiro: Former Cub

Congrats to Rafael Palmeiro on smacking his 3,000th hit. I think it's fair to take a pot shot here at Jim Frey, Cubs General Manager from 1987 to 1991, who, after trading Raffy to the Rangers for an igloo cooler and some pine tar, said that Palmeiro would "never hit for power." Seeing as Palmeiro now ranks 7th all-time in extra-base hits I'm tempted to ask Jim whether he wants his crow boiled or fried. Just another stupid stupid stupid Cubs trade.
