So what's worse?

NO baseball? Or the Cubs dropping two meaningless "summer camp games" to the hated Sox?

Well...I guess I'll take the losses compared to the last 4 months of suspended animation.

But, watching Eloy Jimenez hit the grand salami off Yu in the first inning hurt pretty bad... especially when the guy we got for him is out of action trying to heal a severed nerve in his pitching hand.

Prediction: the Jimenez trade will displace a certain Cubs / Cards trade made 56 years ago that is often cited as the worst trade the Cubs (or any team?) has ever made.

Then again, maybe the Gleyber Torres trade will be in the running? After all, at least we still have the guy we got for Eloy (maybe).

Oh the price of winning it all.
We're gonna see Eloy highlights all year long.
I'm not going to get all weird about a couple sandlot game losses, but it would sure be nice if the Cubs had a big inning before this thing starts.
And in the back of my mind, knowing that the last 3 games of this 60 game season will take place at Comiskey gives me gas.
I did get to hear Pat's "Chicago Cubs baseball is on the air" last night, though.
Vs no baseball it's no contest.
