As you move around slowly this morning, still digesting your Thanksgiving dinner -- or maybe you're one of those who insists that getting up at the crack of dawn on the day after and sitting in the cold outside a Best Buy or Target is a swell idea (me, I only get up that early when I'm getting paid to do so), a few comments on recent and upcoming baseball developments:
▪ Kerry Wood's going to the Brewers. Or Red Sox. Or Cubs. Or...
▪ Barry Bonds, already in a heap of trouble, has old friends and girlfriends ready to testify against him.
▪ Scott Linebrink signs with the White Sox, reportedly for 4/19.
▪ Finally, this one flew under the radar, as there's no web link, just a half-page ad in yesterday's dead-tree edition of the Tribune: the Blackhawks have put all available tickets for their nine December home games on sale at 25% off. In case you were too busy with Turkey Day activities, the sale began at 8 pm last night and ends at midnight Sunday.
