World Series Dreaming:
Still recovering from turkey poisoning here. Cubs news has been relatively scarce since the 40-man roster was set before the holiday. Next deadline is in a week when contracts have to be tendered. That should be exciting and/or frustrating, especially for all the Cubs fans who think Ian Stewart is the devil. It got cold today (28 degrees F!) and I thought about busting out the old ice skates and going a few rounds at the local rink. Which brings us to the rink at Wrigley Field…
You get the feeling that they probably could have done a better job putting this thing together.
Carrie Muskat says that the rink opening was delayed because of the unseasonably warm temperatures. I don’t think I’d skate there anyway, because it doesn’t seem worth it. For one thing, it’s in the parking lot next to the stadium. It’s nice to skate in sight of the iconic scoreboard, but somehow it just seems kind of lame to not actually be inside the park.

So hot, in fact, that he was a Cubs’ representative in the 2012 MLB All-Star game in Kansas City, going into the game with a...
Bryan LaHair will go to Japan for the 2013 season. The 2012 National League All-Star has signed a contract worth $4.5 million to play the next two seasons for the Softbank Hawks.
LaHair was designated for assignment by the Cubs earlier this week and would have been in line for a contract worth the league minimum had he opted to remain in the US.
In 2012 LaHair got off to a strong...
You have to print this out.
Someting to do while waiting for college ball to come on.
It’s after Thanksgiving and there’s really nothing going on that the Cubs front office wants to share at the moment. Maybe we should talk about beer. It would be a nicer conversation if I could actually drink beer like I used to, but because I apparently have some weird form of post-surgery glaucoma and Illinois hasn’t legalized pot yet, I have to take a medication called...
