Before we get started today, for those that are regular readers of the comments, last night we had Monte Cristo sandwiches for dinner. What makes them so extraordinary is the fact that morning I was able to bring a leftover one to work to eat for breakfast. It’s like having french toast in the morning. That got me thinking about morning leftovers.
Q: What is your favorite food to eat leftover in the morning?
For me it would have to be leftover Mexican food, particularly a chimichanga or a burrito. I will eat that stuff, complete with the beans, right out of the fridge. No need to re-heat it. I like it ice cold.
In the News
- Carrie Muskat reported that Tom Ricketts has interviewed four manager candidates (Mike Quade, Ryne Sandberg, Eric Wedge and Bob Melvin). I’m not sure if that is separate from interviews Hendry has conducted, but I found it odd that Ricketts did the interviews. I don’t think it means that Hendry is going to be fired, but perhaps we can deduce that a) Ricketts is going to be involved with this team and b) he may not be 100% committed to Hendry just yet.
- I mentioned on Monday that Larry Rothschild had to make a decision on whether or not to excercise his option for 2011 with the Cubs. He has elected to return, which contrary to a lot of people’s opinion, is a good move for the Cubs.
- John Sickels of MinorLeagueBall.com came out with his hitter and pitcher Top 50 in review summaries the other day. There were a few Cubs on both lists.
Starlin Castro (18th) – Promoted to majors a year earlier than I expected, hit .300/.347/.408 at age 20, obviously very successful.
Josh Vitters (34th) – Hit .291/.350/.445 in High-A, .223/.292/.383 in Double-A, had injury problems. He really needs some consolidation time at one level.
Jay Jackson (36th) – 4.63 ERA with 119/48 K/BB in 157 innings in Triple-A, 153 hits. Erratic season, very good at times, poor at others.
Andrew Cashner (37th) – 2.05 ERA with 59/15 K/BB in 57 innings in Double-A and Triple-A, 4.80 ERA with 50/30 K/BB in 54 innings in the majors. Command was good in the minors, not so good in the majors, should improve eventually.
