Well, the draft has begun. The Cubs are now the proud owners of not 1, but 2 Pattersons. Can my day get any worse? What I noticed though was from the article on the Cubs Site. When referring to the younger of the two evils, the article read as follows:

“Eric Patterson is a solid second base prospect and a contact hitter like his older brother.”


Last time I checked, Corey Patterson doesn’t make too much contact. If that’s the kind of hitter Eric is, can we send him back?
