According to Peter Gammons, we hired Aaron Sele for something. Never forget he received Hall of Fame votes.

Improved clubhouse? Nice. I'm sure that was what sealed the deal for the Brad Brach & Daniel Descalso signings.

Didn't the clubhouse just get a top-down renovation? What did they improve exactly?

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

I believe they added coin slots to all amenities in both locker rooms, home lockers remain free to players but away players must now rent their lockers.

I feel like Rizzo kinda looks like Santo and I never noticed that before

...it took me a day before I figured it out. I was focusing on the fact that he was dead. The joke is even worse/better than that. Awesome.

So I follow Chris Singleton on Twitter and saw where he was open to speaking with schools and universities fall-spring 2019/2020. I messaged him and asked if he would be interested in speaking at ECU and he said absolutely.

Anyway, this past week I’ve emailed probably a dozen or so people and think we may have a fit with one department for next academic year. Really pumped about this and it’s such an imperative message for college students (well, America in general) in this day in age.

As an aside, one of the girls I’m working with on bringing him in to speak is originally from charleston and they have mutual friends. Small world.

Think about the medical problems Santo had late in his life and that should get you there.
