Baseball Told the Right WayIn-depth Baseball analysis on various topics regarding the sport we all love!
So I am watching the news and a big topic is the Cubs expanding 1,800 seats in the bleachers. That really isn't a problem with me. The problem that I came across is the $60 dollar ticket price for premium bleacher seats. Part of the fun of getting bleacher seats is it is first come first serve. It sounds like the front few rows are now off limits. Either way, limiting your choices in the bleachers at Wrigley is a step in the wrong direction. Also, The Cubs are $30 million under their so-called "budget" and only one player is out there worth signing, Jeff Weaver. Problem is they went the cheap route in hopes that Wade Miller and Kerry Wood can equal 17 wins or so. I am sorry to say but Jim Hendery has totally taken a backseat to Kenny Williams. The latest rumor is Bobby Abreau for Jermaine Dye. If that happens, The White Sox are gonna be harder to beat than ever. I guess we'll just have to see what happens.
Things I thought were interesting...
Rick Ankiel has a good shot at making the Cards opening day roster as a hitter. He belted 21 homers in the minors last season.
Kevin Appier is competing for a spot with the Mariners.
Andy Marte has been traded two times in seven weeks.
The Padres only have one player under 30 in their everyday lineup (Kahlil Greene).
Felix Diaz, formally a big White Sox prospect, is going to play in Japan.
Bobby Abreau may be traded to the south siders for Jermaine Dye.
David Kelton was not offered a contract by the Cubs and has caught on with another club.
The Devil Rays are still hoping that Josh Hamilton, former first overall draft-pick, will conquer his drug addiction.
More to come...
