Default Campaign for one more at-bat for Adam Greenberg

http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2012/09/...rg-one-at-bat/
Would this even be a story if it wasn't an ex-Cub?

I just saw this today. What do the Cubs have to lose? Market it properly and they sell a couple thousand extra tickets to an otherwise meaningless and empty early October game.

MLB doesn't do one-day contracts. I don't know what they'd be, but I'm sure there would be some MLBPA issues to resolve regarding what they'd have to pay him.

Odd fact: Both Greenberg and Moonlight Graham are University of North Carolina grads.

At the end of the day, Major League Baseball is not the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

I like the story, but this ain't the movies.

If they did bring him in, if I was pitching against him I'd drill him. Or walk him.

Anything so he doesn't get an "at bat"

Drill him, are you kidding me? That's horrible. You gotta treat him as anybody else, and fan him on 3 straight.
