World Series Dreaming:
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. I’m not going to call anyone out or refe...

block, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, and right-hander Matt
Garza could join him once he regains his health, reports Jim Bowden of ESPN.

New Chicago Cubs outfielder Dave Sappelt, you are know Dave Chappelle. Your attempts at humor are about as effective as Alfonso Soriano’s fielding. Your rendition/attempt at Sinbad’s “women be shopping!” bit fell painfully flat. And you made remarks that would you an A+ at the Joe Cowley school of gender relations. You knew never took a class in women’s studies in college...
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. Chances are though, he'll platoon with DeJesus and Schierholtz and be the thunder off the bench late in games. And if they happen to trade Alfonso Soriano at some point, he might just be the starting left fielder. The 33-year...
Matt Garza missed most of the second half of the season with a stress reaction in his elbow. He was shut down as a precaution which also shut down his trade possibilities. It seems pretty clear that Garza will be traded at some point this season, but for now the Chicago Cubs are looking to make sure he is healthy and get him back on a mound.
According to Jim Bowden of Sirius...

Yes! The news is finally official! After the longest physical in the history of western civilization the Cubs have signed Carlos Villanueva! So who is this mysterious pitcher from another country (Canada)?
A Carlos Raúl Villanueva no le gustaban los obesos.

Baseball Operations Position to Report to Assistant GM
Yesterday, the baseball world was rocked by yet another steroid scandal in baseball. Okay, maybe the baseball world was not rocked, as steroids have been a part of baseball since the early 1990s (if not well before) and will be for many years to come. The Miami based “anti-aging clinic”, which has been nicknamed the East Coast Balco, supplied steroids to athletes from all sports...
