Apparently, Kris Bryant is impressing Joe Maddon in CUBS camp. It's going to be very difficult for the CUBS to relegate him to Triple A without severe pushback from fandom. People who buy tickets and are, ultimately, those who actually pay salaries for players and front office people, don't care about the extra year of club control that delaying his entry into the majors by three weeks will buy for the club. Everyone knows that the solution is to start him on opening day and then, during the year, negotiate a long term contract the locks him up for a long time.
Manny Ramirez is a Batting Consultant with the CUBS, and his first and major project is Javier Baez. If he can get this kid's head on right (with a bat in his hands), Javy's marvelous play at 2nd Base will make him an All Star. You heard it here, first.
The 10 day forecast looks like Winter is finally going to give it up. Monday a week is the start of a string of 40 degree days. Yipee. Really. Yippee.
A week from today I interview for the job I'm hoping to get. Fingers crossed.
Anyone who has good slow-cooker recipes that they like, feel free to email them to me. Dump dinners would be best. (A dump dinner is one where all the ingredients are put in the slow cooker at once and cooked up from raw.)
I will, however, be glad to do more complicated stuff on the weekends, so don't hesitate to send your favorite slow-cooker recipes.
Email said recipes to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Because you love me.
