The Cubs hired a new manager, ex Padre bench coach Rick Renteria.
It's not all baseball celebrity-atory like Joe Girardi would have been, but it is fantastic they got a guy who's supposed to be a good teacher and speaks the language of some of the Cubs most promising players.
Plus he kinda looks like Earl Weaver with that older guy white hair thing going on - looks like a baseball man.
I'm also glad they hired him just because it was taking forever.
So lets see if Starlin Castro can get back on track.
Remember at the beginning?
All that promise that sort of just flattened out last year.
I can't believe that was all Dale Sveum's fault, but that doesn't matter now - there's a new guy and I'm dying to hear what Theo Epstein has to say about him at the press conference even though Renteria won't be there due to some hip thing that won't allow him to travel.
Maybe somebody with an i-Phone will video him putting on the Cubs jersey.
Lastly, it's just an eye-poppingly gorgeous fall day in Chicago.
And now... back to your regularly scheduled wait for the World Series...
