Found January 17, 2013 on World Series Dreaming:
The last time we did Mad Libs was kind of fun but way too involved.  That’s probably because Rick Telander uses way too many words to say not very much at all.  Anyway, today we have a somewhat accurate yet snarky article from Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports as he took a look at the Cubs in 2013.  Amazingly, the Cubs were not ranked lower than #21 out of the 30 MLB clubs.  We’ll just take an excerpt from the article so you can go through without wasting as much time as in the previous edition of Cubs Mad Libs.  Still a work in progress, but I think we can definitely perfect this format. STOP! Do NOT go any further before you look at the list of words and fill in your own choices!  It’ll be funnier that way.  Ready?  Might want to get a pen/paper or your Notepad app ready… A character trait Noun (plural) Type of person (plural) Object Destructive verb Unit of measure Physics term Verb Annoying celebrity Math term Object (plural) Emotion Military weapon Adjective Negative adjective The w...

Epstein won't waver from Cubs' long-term plan

Although the Chicago Cubs are coming off a 61-101 season, team president Theo Epstein sounded an optimistic tone in recent days as the team's push toward spring training heated up. "It's postseason or bust every year," Epstein said. "That's what our goal is." If teams and their executives, even realistic ones like Epstein, can't be optimistic...

Cubs, Garza agree to $10.25M deal

Matt Garza and the Chicago Cubs have agreed to a $10.25 million, one-year contract that avoids salary arbitration. Creative Artists Agency, which represents the right-hander, announced the deal Thursday night on Twitter. Garza also posted on his account, ''Business side over! Hooray! Time to focus on what really matters 2013.'' Garza avoided arbitration a year ago...

Chicago Cubs & Jeff Samardzija will wait to discuss long-term deal

There isn't much to be excited about in this Chicago Cubs pitching staff. There is depth sure, but there are only two or three true quality arms in the rotation. One of those arms is the breakout pitcher of 2012, Jeff Samardzija. After the laughter subsided following Samardzija's declaration that he wanted to be in the rotation, he went out and dazzled all of us in spring...

Cubs GM Says Matt Garza and Scott Baker on Track

 Jesse Rogers of ESPN-Chicago reports that Theo Epstein, Chicago Cubs GM, spoke optimistically about two of his projected starting pitchers for 2013, Matt Garza and Scott Baker. "Both guys should be ready to start the year," Epstein said Wednesday. Baker, 31, was acquired via free agency on November 13.  The righty starter has spent his entire career with...

Jeff Samardzija under the radar

After years of being the golden boy and fan favorite who couldn't quite get there, Jeff Samardzija arrived as a starter in 2012. His record and ERA perhaps belittle the type of season he really had. His record of 9-13 with an ERA of 3.89 in 28 starts might not excite anyone. If you dig a little deeper, there was a lot of impressive stuff about his season considering it was his...

Choose Your Own Cubs Adventure 4: The Cubs Convention

The 2013 Cubs Convention is this weekend, and you can check out the schedule and the list of invitees that unfortunately (to me, at least) does not include a certain former Cub.  For those of you who can’t go, please follow the WSD Twitter (check the sidebar to follow) and our forum thread where most of the news will end up once stories and updates are ready.  There is also a...

Hairston deciding soon

Photo By Michael BaronFor the second time in less then a month were hearing that a Scott Hairston decision is imminent. Supposedly Hairston was choosing between the Mets and Yanks with a decision any day but when the Yanks lost interest he decided to wait the market out. Now reports are that Hairston is once again close, is this a ploy to see if he can get that two year 8M contract...
