wrigley field from right bleachers

Scott Baker makes his season debut today, which should make for very interesting viewing. To make room on the 40-man roster for Baker, Cody Ransom was designated for assignment. A veteran who’d long stopped producing, Ransom was not going to be kept on the roster over the offseason anyway. He’ll likely seek out a minor league deal to begin the 2014 season.
