Cub Tracks was saying Yuuuuu

Louuuuuuu Cubs and MLB news — balking at the expense, and other stories Sometimes my tongue is so far in my cheek that it comes out like the spring in a piece of crunchy frog. This may or may not be one of those times. The same wags that defined insanity say a picture is worth a thousand words. My publisher has other ideas, but I digress. Several thousand words’ worth of baseball poetry below: Ricketts came out to a crowd with 50% cheers and 50% Boos.

I’m not sure anyone could have anticipated that a random week in the offseason would turn into one of the craziest stretches modern baseball has seen. If you can believe it, we’re not actually all that far from live exhibition baseball starting up.
