Cub Tracks Went To Bed Too Early

New, 116 comments

Go to bed at 11:00pm, and what happens? Jon Lester signs for $155 million while I sleep. Reactions from the major outlets plus next steps, Joe Maddon's eagerness, and pricey photos in Thursday's Cub Tracks.

Apparently I need to rethink my bedtime.

So it turns out I was worried about the wrong time frame Tuesday night when I had two hours away from news sources at 6:00 p.m. to watch my daughter's choral concert, figuring that in that two-hour window everything would happen and I wouldn't be able to catch it. The concert was a lot of fun, though, and my daughter can sing a heck of a lot better than I ever could. I guess from now on I need to stay up until 12:30 a.m. or so to catch all of the good scoops.  Now if I could just find a way to function on five hours of sleep per night...

With all of the stories from the major outlets over the past 48 hours, I'm giving the blogs the day off.  But they'll be back again, rest assured.
