When I first saw them, that's what I thought: winter baseball hats with earflaps.
Then I remembered the Cubs were in Arizona.
If you've been watching the news or looking in the paper you've seen this hat on some of the Cubs.
I know there are much more pressing things to talk about (Cubs and Zambrano avoid arbitration!), but this hat might be annoying me all...season...long.
Not like LaTroy Hawkins annoying, but more like squishy-buns-on-the-hot-dogs-from-the-walk-around-vendors annoying.
Every day annoying.
This hat design has no dignity for a team that's been around as long as the Cubs.
Let the Devil Rays do stuff like this.
Maybe it's just some kind of spring training experiment that'll go away before the season starts.
As usual with my favorite team, I can only hope.
