Truth in John Nuveen/Chicago Cubs Advertising

John Nuveen poster for Wrigley Field

From a campaign for Nuveen Investments designed specifically for use in and around the Wrigley Field skyboxes.You can see the rest of the posters here and here.

One of hundreds of seats at Wrigley Field without obstructive view.

"The Cubs new January schedule means plenty of available seats for the entire family"


"For the low cost of your first-born, you can reserve a season ticket at Wrigley"* 
(*additional seats require additional children, children must be in good health and vaccinated)

Nice find!

So I imagine the line-up looks like this:

DH Fukudome
LF Patterson
1b Lee
3b Ram
CF Edmonds
RF Ward/C Soto
C Soto/RF Ward
2b Fontenot
SS Theriot

That looks like an outfield that can turn some outs into doubles.

Theriot also a benchwarmer, as the line-up is:

DH Fukudome
LF Patterson
1b Lee
3b Ramirez
RF Ward
CF Edmonds
C Soto
2b Fontenot
SS Cedeno

V.

SS Cabrera
C Jackass
LF Quentin
RF Dye
DH Thome
1b Swisher
3b Crede
2b Ramirez
CF Wise

I dont understand playing Ward in RF or giving Cedeno a bat.

  • Yep, can't say I disagree with that. His first batter and resulting walk was just brutal. Reminded me of a bit of Jacque Jones spiking his throws into the ground from RF.

  • The use of Peralta in any semblance of a high leverage situation is questionable at best.

    fixed that for ya.

  • "Tommy La Stella (hamstring) will remain on his minor league rehab assignment through at least Friday."

    should be an interesting roster shuffle once these guys trickle back in. i imagine patton or peralta are on the hot seat for la stella's return.

  • Not certain why the site has been slowed. Worked much of Wednesday on it and will continue today. Sorry for the inconvenience. I will probably take it offline for a while, but it will be up before the game against the Mets.

  • Boras is 63, maybe he'll be retired or dead by the time Bryant, Russell, Almora, Albertos all hit free agency. Doubt he will be before Jake hits there though.
