TEAMS: Chicago Cubs
The Chicago Cubs have yet to set foot on the field at HoHoKam Park and already, they've got a sell out on their hands.Sort of.Saturday, tickets went on sale for Pearl Jam's July 19 show at Wrigley Field and not long after, well...there was this.Not too shabby for a show that was only announced, officially, a little over two weeks ago.Oh, and if anyone has a ticket to spare...I'll gladly take it off your hands.  I even promise to not vomit during "All the Way", which, you've gotta think, will be played.

Cubs annouce signing of Scott Hairston

The deal between Scott Hairston and the Chicago Cubs has been formally announced. Hariston and the Cubs agreed to a two-year deal worth $5 million nearly two weeks ago. Hairston can earn another $1 million in incentives and expects to platoon with Nate Schierholtz in right field. The Cubs outfield hardly seems set in stone and it is reasonable to expect Hairston to accumulate a large...

Chicago Cubs: OF Tony Campana designated for assignment after Hairston move

The Chicago Cubs added a little depth to their roster on Sunday when the team announced they reached a two-year agreement with OF Scott Hairston. The deal is worth a reported $5 million for two years. In order to clear a roster spot for Hairston, the team made a move with OF Tony Campana, who was designated for assignment. Chicago general manager Jed Hoyer told reporters that he...

Chicago Cubs close deal with Scott Hairston, local guy

News out of Mesa, Arizona today on the first day that pitchers and catchers report. The Chicago Cubs and outfielder Scott Hairston agreed to terms: two-years, $5 million contract. To make room for Hairston on the 40-man roster, outfielder Tony Campana was designated for assignment. The deal was reported last month and is now finalized. Scott Hairston, who can earn an additional ...

Cubs’ circus act leaves town for good

The Cubs finalized a deal with newly-acquired outfielder Scott Hairston, who they signed as a free agent last month.   That they got Hairston, who signed a two-year deal, into the fold isn’t necessarily the real story in Chicago. Yes, he hit 20 home runs with the New York Mets last season, and yes, he [...]

Don’t Say Goodbye to Tony Campana Just Yet

Just about every media outlet that matters, including Carrie Muskat, has reported that Tony Campana has been designated for assignment to make room for Scott Hairston.  The Cubs 40-man roster is now full up again, but just replace Campana’s name with Hairston’s.  At this point the Cubs have 10 days to waive, trade or release Campana.  But I think there’s a good chance that...

Buntfest 2013: Front Office Analysis

The Buntfest is returning!  This time, with a twist: This spring, the Cubs will have their second bunting tournament, with a slight tweak. The front office will compete for a spot in the field of 64, and Theo Epstein was expected to square off against GM Jed Hoyer in their first round match. David DeJesus won the tourney last year. There are a number of other staffers in the new...

Scott Hairston, Cubs finalize 2-year contract

Outfielder Scott Hairston and the Chicago Cubs have finalized a two-year contract. The 32-year-old Hairston hit .263 with a career-high 20 homers, 57 RBIs and 25 doubles last year in his second season with the New York Mets. He also has played for Arizona (2004-07), San Diego (2007-09, 2010) and Oakland (2009) during a nine-year big league career. Hairston has a .247 career average...

A Tale of Two Legends

The devastating news du jour as pitchers and catchers reported today was that Cubs legend (TM) Tony Campana was designated for assignment and thus likely exposed to waivers assuming that the Cubs can’t trade him.  There is actually a good chance that some random team (my guess is the Atlanta Braves) will use one of their open spots to claim Tony, and then the cycle of Cubs fan...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Cubbies

One of the benefits of being a parent is being able to watch television shows that you would otherwise feel guilty about watching by yourself. My daughter has become a fan of the most recent version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The new version has made numerous changes to the cartoon and movies that I watched as a child, but the same basic premise of the main characters is...
