bn-baseballWe had an unusually fertile weekend for news and Cubs-related stuff, so I wanted to offer a quick round-up for those of you who are weekday-only BN’ers, and who may have missed all the stuff that appeared here over the weekend.

    This is what I love about BN – an entire post just dedicated to pimping stories written here on BN.

    At least it was short and informative…

    Brett, as one of the weekday only BN’ers I appreciate this round-up. It makes it much easier to enjoy the site! Please consider doing this in the future as well.
    Great Job as always!

      Yes, it does help! Brett, I just read the Ryan Braun story, and you said it looks “bad” for him. That really means “good”, right? :)

    Speaking of international players, what is going on with the two players from Cuba? The shortstop and outfielder I believe, I really wanted to Cubs to sign these guys but I haven’t heard anything recently.

    This happened over the weekend: I purchased a pack of Topps 2013 baseball cards at Target. I don’t go to Target that often as most people. The trip ends up being roughly a quarterly endeavor. So needless to say I get excited about swinging by the card shelf. Anyways, in the pack who should I find, Adam Greenberg. In the voice of Gob, “Oh, c’mon.”

    Ricketts are from Omaha NE. Omaha just built a brand new Baseball stadium for the College World Series. The stadium holds 20K+ now and was designed future expansion if necessary. Move the team to Omaha!
