In 1914, the Chicago Whales were the first team to play at Wrigley Field. The Whales are looking for players so I thought I would suggest a few. Feel free to join me. Gotta start with the Reuschel brothers Rick and Paul. Prince Fielder would make the club along with Tony Gwynn. David Wells and CC Sabathia would work on the Whales. Kirby Puckett could play center although Kirby was more barrell chested but hard to find a CF for the Whales. May be impossible to find a shortstop. Plenty of pitchers. Darren Oliver could pitch for the Whales. Darren Oliver MIGHT have pitched for the Whales. Carlos Lee could be a Whale. Theo would like David Ortiz as a Whale. Pablo Sandoval would make a nice Whale. Anyone whose nickname is "Kung Fu Panda" is welcome on the Whales. Lance Berkman's nickname is "Fat Elvis" so he's in. Of course, probably the most famous Whale of all is a Yankee, Babe Ruth.

Only one real life Whale went over 200 lbs: Hans Rasmussed. Weighed in at 220 lbs, BUT, stood 6'6"! Alas, wasn't much thought of as he garnered all of 2 at bats for the Whales in 1915. He did hit .500 though, lol........
