Originally written January 01, 2013 on World Series Dreaming:
We’re still recovering from a New Year’s celebration hangover…or in some cases, just being old.  I guess someone needs to jump-start 2013 on this blog while all our livers climb back from the abyss, so here’s an attempt. The lovely and always funny Ms. Julie DiCaro posted her Cubs New Year resolutions earlier.  I’m not above copying a good idea. Top Ten List   2013 Cubs Resolutions     I resolve to take advantage of all the fan apathy and lowered expectations and get into as many cheap/discounted/free games at Wrigley Field as I can this season.  Just like last season.  If this new front office actually has a good plan, cheap tickets may not last for much longer. I resolve to realize that even if the Cubs are magically within spitting distance of .500 in July, a bunch of guys are still going to be traded.  And that’s cool. I resolve to support the various scrubs and retreads that put on the uniform and do their best every day, but won’t shed a tear when the inevitable throw-in trade or DFA arrives.  There’s a reason they’re called “replacement-level” players. I resolve to keep buying lunch outside Wrigley before going in because Wrigley concession options still suck. I resolve to pick at least one day when the wind is blowing out to try to catch a home run ball on Waveland and Sheffield.  Ball hawks beware. I resolve to not flip out as much when somebody makes a mistake, because baseball is really hard. I resolve to at least consider the fact that maybe the dudes who are actually in charge of the Cubs know a bit more about baseball and the team than I do, although I reserve the right to question and analyze any confusing decisions. I resolve to not get too excited about the acquisition of prospects, but note that they are important and that the guys in charge are pretty good at cultivating the right ones. I resolve not to laugh right away when someone tells me Tony Campana is a great player. I resolve to break at least one of the resolutions above, and maybe more. Enjoy next year, folks.
PLAYERS: Tony Campana
