Is there a place in the New Cubs organization for Old Cubs

Is there a place in the New Cubs organization for Old Cubs
Yesterday, four months after his abrupt yet necessary retirement from the game, Kerry Wood was honored by the Cubs with a pre-game ceremony, including a first pitch by his son Justin (who is as “effectively wild” as his old man) and, finally, an essentially solo performance of “Ballgame” by Justin during the 7th inning stretch. ...

Unconditional Faith in Theo Must Endure

So, the lineup that needs NO introduction, because, even if I introduced it, nobody would care….your 2012 Chicago Cubs! DeJesus RF, Barney 2B, Castro SS, LaHair 1B, Soriano LF, Stewart 3B, Byrd CF, Soto C, Dempster P.

Now, Cubs fans, let's bring in the Ryno!

Now, Cubs fans, let's bring in the Ryno!
It appears that Ricketts has done it…he has brought in a Theo Epstein-esque figure.  It happens to be Theo his own bad self.  Kurt is right.  Bringing in Dusty Baker when we did was big.  Soriano was big.  Piniella was big.  This is big-cubed.  Get yourself to your local college, and learn some basic statistics,...
