I assume we know who CUBS, COL, SD, and LA are

I saw an ad for the Cubs in its newspaper's sports section yesterday, and the ad included the schedule. Next to the schedule, it has this:

Quote:
2005 American Leauge opponent key: BOS=Boston Red Sox, CWS=Chicago White Sox, NYY=New York Yankees, TOR=Toronto Blue Jays
Now does the Cubs marketing department think their fans are so dumb that they need a key explaining who American League teams are?

I think we all already know the answer to that question.

Yeah, asking if Cub fans are dumb is similar to asking if the Pope is Catholic.

They know their fans better than anybody.

Baseball fans know who the teams are. Cub fans don't.

Yes.

On a side note, why are the Cubs only playing three AL East teams? Or did you leave one off? Each team should have 6 interleague series. The Sox have 2 with the Cubs, 1 each with LA, SD, Col, and AZ. We don't play only one NL West team. This year it's SF, in 2003 it was Colorado.

During one of the interleague series, two of the NL Central teams (I'm pretty sure it's always two NL Central teams) have to play each other.

They probably ought to post a list for the NL teams too; I bet there's plenty of Cub fans who don't know who they are either.

Why are the Sox playing the NL West again this year? Shouldn't it be back to the NL Central or are they trying to make up for all those years when we only played the central?

If it was up to me, we would play the Central. I'd like to keep that Milwaukee rivalry going a little bit aside from exhibitions.

Every team on that list could kill the Cubs. They should be worried about teams they can actually compete with. They are gonna have no offense to back up their consistant pitchers and they are gonna end up 3rd in the NLC.
