Hey David DeJesus.
No pressure or anything, but in a couple days you're gonna be the first Cub batter in the first game of The New Beginning.
You have a chance to get the first hit!
WAKE UP, MAN!
Your April numbers are scaring all us Cub Fans.
90 at bats and 20 hits?
You just broke the Mendoza line on April Fool's day?
I'll take the 8 walks though.
Maybe you're one of those guys who start slow, and your ST numbers really mean nothing.
Not that I'm paying attention to the falloff in 2011 or anything.
Ahhh, all the above minor angst aside, I can't wait to see you out at Wrigley Field.
It's your fresh start.
Make something of it!
Next, here's a link to a cool story at Hardball Times about an unfortunate trade for the Cubs, but the beginning of the modern closer.
Can you guess who it's about?
Sure you can.
