But they could very well recoup that in spades depending on how much advertisers are willing to pay to be a part of that network.

Much depends on how the Cubs do this season, if they play well again or go deep in the playoffs that would certainly strengthen their advertising pitch to potential sponsors.

I know that and you know that. For baseball to survive you'll need gate receipts.

FWIW Jesse Rogers reporting that Lester is going to the Injured List. Also, saw a video of the walkway to the Catalina Club, no way that thing is ADA complaint, so narrow.

So he misses a start. No big deal. I have not looked at the Cubs; schedule (why would I?), but I'm sure there is very likely an off day before his next turn if he had not hurt himself. This would mean he could get almost two weeks to rest up.

Of course, with Lester being close to Social Security eligibility, his body is probably starting to break down...Ö..

The big concern about a hamstring issue for a starting pitcher in April is that it could become a seasonlong nagging and recurrent thing.

Maybe it's no big deal. Maybe Chatwood will see a lot more action that most Cubs fans would like.

From this article, it sounds like Darvish could be even a worse neighbor than pitcher:

I should sue my former neighbor. He built a tall fence some time ago. Parts of my grass don't get enough sun light because of it.

What a great time it is to be alive.

Cubs and Sox are tied for the best baseball record in Chicago!

(of course on The Score this morning, they said five or six of the Cub losses should not count because "they played well." )

So if you played well and it wasn't enough to win, what does that say for the strength of your team?

Of course, bad pitching, bad defense is going to lose a lot of games even if you otherwise play well, as if the two things are remotely compatible, and bad pitching and defense has it's figurative fingerprints all over those losses.

It's a strange concept, even ignoring the ambiguous assessment. Does that fact that they played well indicate they aren't as bad as their record makes them appear? Does it mean they squandered well played games they should have won?

And what does it say for the Cubs if are playing generally good baseball and can't post a better record than the White Sox who are playing really bad baseball, bad enough that it sometimes appears they aren't even trying to win?

The story made me wonder if any money changed hands under any tables to get the zoning variance. When I lived in Southeast Alaska, people used to try to prevent other people from building on islands that they owned because people whined about how clearing trees would ruin the view from their homes and lower their property values. Crowds didn't get more passionate. In this case, the fence seems to violate not only zoning but specific property covenants and restrictions. It wasn't a simple variance to city regulation but a revision of an agreement with another property owner.

The fact that such a thing could be decided at a public meeting without being specifically noted on the agenda sounds like more than a bureaucratic oversight. I don't know the Illinois open-meeting law, but there could be more to this story.

How did these guys get so lucky to miss Mike Trout?

Without Trout, the Angels are real easy pickings.
