PLAYERS: Dave Sappelt
TEAMS: Chicago Cubs
Social media is great; it has definitely changed the world. It is a great tool to connect with others, promote your business or stay up to date with your favorite athletes, but it can also get you in trouble. That’s what happened last night, on Twitter, with Cubs OF Dave Sappelt. In case you don’t have a Twitter account, or were out in the icy mess that occurred in Chicago trying to get home or maybe you were the ONE person watching the Pro Bowl, here is a breakdown of what happened. Dave Sappelt tweeted: “Women driving me scares the dog **** out of me” And then he tweeted: “When women get to shopping there is no stopping them looks like its time to pull the #FIREALARM” I usually just like to talk about what players do on the field, but in this case, I really had to voice my opinion because I think that he was treated unfairly, and as a woman, I think my point of view matters even more since he was accused right away for being a sexist jerk.

The Week That Was...

So the Cubs are going to sign Scott Hairston, but since the deal isn't official we don't really have comments from TheJedi on his exact purpose.

There's a good chance that the entire upper two levels of minors turns over completely by the end of the year (save Watkins, who might actually graduate to the majors by the end of 2013).  Filling those gaps will be some exciting names, though. One in particular...
