I guess I should make Jeff Passan a category. He’s consistently right about things, writes well and is sometimes, like in this comic look at recent Cubs’ history, very funny.
I’m not sure what to make of Soriano moving to center field. After the initial reluctance he seemed to adjust to left field. He’s fast enough to chase stuff down out there, so I suspect it could work (with some miscues).
As for the money, it’s funny. None of it makes any rational sense. Maybe the Cubs got better this week, maybe not, but at least the scratch is going to the performers.
