It's alright, guys. The Yankees signed Lyle Overbay, they'll be fine.

Hearing Ricketts wants to move Wrigley Field to Rosemont. I don't blame him one bit. That town robs his profits and places so many restrictions on the Cubs.

re: MLB: COMMENCE HOLDING PATTERN

Why? Explain.

Rosemont's mayor already offered the Ricketts family a substantial package, including the city of Rosemont funding a brand new ball park. Whereas if they kept it in Wrigleyville, majority of the money for renovations and a new park would have to come from Tom and his family.

It's simply a negotiation ploy by Ricketts.

The so-called true Cubs fans would probably go out to Rosemont to see a game. Maybe some of the suburban fans would go more often. On the other hand fans on the North side and North Shore might find Rosemont to be a tougher trek than public transit to Wrigley. The Cubs surely know where their fan base lives, but I don’t, so let’s call this a wash. The hardcore fans stay on.


Moving to Rosemont would really hurt they're attendance. Lots of people go to Wrigley field just for the atmosphere. There's also a lot of people who aren't even from Chicago just go to Wrigley to visit and say they've been there.

re: MLB: COMMENCE HOLDING PATTERN

Yeah, valid points. I think those people closer north would rather go to a game at Miller Park in Milwaukee, though.

It's those roof tops that revenue share with the Cubs, which is killing them. That dumbass Alderman who wont allow night games or let the Ricketts family build extra facilities or a parking lot. It's becoming cumbersome to stay in Chicago. When you think about it, this franchise is a top 3-5 franchise in terms of history, its market place (fan appeal), and relevance amongst today's MLB fan base. Yet the Ricketts family lost $110 million of potential revenue last year because of city ordinances and a neighborhood that doesn't like the Cubs.

Just a bad position to be in. I'd abandon that shit hole immediately and build a new venue. 73% of fans polled by the Tribune said they would still support the team, regardless of where they play.

re: MLB: COMMENCE HOLDING PATTERN

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BUSTER MVPOSEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



The city of San Francisco's gift to MVPosey this year? The ridding of having to pay cash at the Golden Gate Bridge. Aww.

Enjoy your cake, MVPosey--it even has your number, 28, on it!



In other news:

LMFAO LMFAO

Yankees claim Dan fucking Otero from the GIANTS! OH, HAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

This guy has to be the worst pitcher in our farm system.

I'll never forgive him, either, because last April in Cincinnati, Bochy put Otero in to pitch because the game was out of hand at that point. And Otero was as wild as any pitcher you've seen. So, Joey Votto comes up and Otero, being the wild fuck he is, inadvertently hits Votto in the leg. The Reds, of course, take exception, and crusty Dusty Baker sends Sam LeCure out, and has him try to drill MVPosey in the area right underneath his knee in the leg. Which made me want to reach into the television set and kill both LeCure and Otero. But, here's the coolest part: that just pissed MVPosey off. And very quickly, MVPosey hit an opposite field HR off LeCure, and talked trash at him while he rounded the bases because he's a boss that way.

So, in conclusion, LOL YANKEES.

re: MLB: COMMENCE HOLDING PATTERN

Diamondbacks players are dropping like flies:

Steve Berthiaume ‏@BertDbacks 4m
#Dbacks Jason Kubel left tonight’s game with an injury. Should know more soon. Same with Willie Bloomquist. Aaron Hill says he’s fine after being hit by a pitch on the left hand.
