I know its not looking too special this year but that is a cool commercial! I just heard a commercial for tickets so I am hoping to get to a few games again this year. Hopefully better than one of the ones I went to last year when it was wind chill around 20....in May. And it was 66 today in March!

Actually kind of excited this year....not expecting much, but maybe they'll be fun to watch.

Me too. Not expecting a lot but hoping it's the beginning of a good rebuilding. At least maybe be in the hunt.

And I saw what you posted before your edit SuperNet. I chose to ignore it.
Go start a sox thread.

Tickets look cool this year. Note how the ticket cost drops from $48 to $12 from opening day to Monday night.

$12 cubs tickets? That has to be a miss-print.

$12 for terrace reserved for an early April night game is definitely not a misprint. Upper deck reserved outfield is $8 for those same nights. They're not seats I'd want.

Terrace Reserve depends on the location. TR in a low row behind the backstop offers better views then a lot of box seats. Some box seats have a pitch so low you cannot see over the heads in front of you, and are too low to see the whole field. Some TR gives the best view of just enough height to see but not too far back.

I think it's time to start a pool on what player will be the first to launch a homer into the new TV display out in Right Field!

Go Cubs Go!!!

You've probably already heard that Kerry Wood is retiring today. My plans for tonight include watching the DVD of his 20K game.

Kerry Wood's last pitch a strike out and exits with a standing ovation. Gonna miss him (I think). I do remember his 20K game back in 98.

I still remember when Dusty Baker came to the Cubs before the 03 season and he vowed to shed the image of the Cubs as the "Love able Losers" of MLB.

Well, Baker, Piniella, Quade and Sveum have succeeded.

The Cubs are no longer Love able...

This may be good! Maybe Hell will Freeze over and the Cubbies can finally win the big one.

We have a .5% chance of making the play offs according to ESPN!

I have a feeling this will be one of the shortest Cubs season thread ever. Anyone ready to move onto hot stove talk yet?

So who will still be a Cub after the deadline?

I say Garza is gone maybe DeJesus, they might be able to pawn Soriano if they eat 80% or better of his contract. It is possible LeHair might be gone 29yo with Rizzo burning it up in AAA, if Soriano and DeJesus go then LeHair stays to play one of the corner OF spots but he is not a long term guy, too old and league has figured him out already.
Marmol & Soto might go also.

What is needed?
1B and 3B Power = Rizzo & ???
RF Avg and speed = ???
LF HR Power =???
C = Clevenger & Castillo in that order.
RP = 2 quality middlemen and quality closer. Closer won't be found this year, too many injured around league and will demand too much money on market.
SP = It would make sense to keep Garza but they will trade him for a couple good prospects and a already good player. Need two good starters maybe 1 stud.

Need to be gone= Stewart, Baker, Hill, Soto.
Should keep= Johnson good PH and can play all 3 outfield spots. Campana great speed everyday CF ??? if they bat him leadoff yes.

Also Happy memorial day everyone. Special thanks to those who have or are serving in our military!

For sure, Soto has to go. Marmol and Soriano won't get moved unless the Cubs eat those contracts.

What a train wreck this season has been... like so many before. I almost don't even feel like hot stove talk yet, although the cool weather has helped.
