In typical fashion, my post from this morning became obsolete within a couple of hours. Ben Sheets just signed with the Oakland A’s (I don’t understand 90% of what that organization does.) And more notably (to me, that is), the Cubbies just agreed to a deal with Xavier Nady, pending a physical. According to Ken Rosenthal the physical is not just a “formality.” Mr. Nady’s recent injury history is not good, so I suppose the whole thing could go up in smoke. I am not going to be cautious or superstitious, though. I am just going to go ahead and say: Welcome to Chicago, Xavier Nady. I will have even more fun doodling your name now that you’re a Cub.
