Ian Stewart last night offered perhaps the greatest tweet I’ve ever seen:
Just being nice? Maybe. Either way, suddenly, I want the Cubs to sign Stewart to a 10-year extension. With 10 options years thereafter. And a personal services contract for another 30 years after that. And I want them to give him a rice crispy treat. A big one. The kind with chocolate chips. Big ones.
Unfortunately, Stewart’s future with the Cubs is uncertain, after the third baseman announced he’ll be undergoing surgery on his troublesome wrist next week (Tuesday), and could miss the rest of the season. As I noted before, although Stewart is eligible for arbitration again after this season, the Cubs may elect to non-tender him, and try to work out a (less expensive) one-year deal thereafter.
And, now that we know Ian reads BN, we’ll just have to hope he sticks to the articles, and avoids the comments.
(A big thanks to BN’er Rylan for posing the question.)
