Jason Motte was signed to pitch in high leverage situations this season AND provide veteran leadership for the Cubs' young bullpen. The picture below was taken at last weekend's Cubs Convention.
I'm not doubting his pitching prowess, but this picture certainly doesn't build my confidence in him guiding a bunch of early twenty-somethings to success. It looks like Joe Maddon may have his hands full.
You have probably heard that Wrigley Field's bleachers won't be finished until June. I guess left-field is scheduled to be completed in early May and it's right-field brethren will open up in late May.

Lastly, I've been thinking about picking up a part-time and/or summer job. A new sports complex will be opening near my neighborhood late this spring and supposedly the management is looking to hire individuals who have coaching experience and know the games of softball and baseball. Hey, that's me!
