Truth in John Nuveen/Chicago Cubs Advertising

John Nuveen poster for Wrigley Field

From a campaign for Nuveen Investments designed specifically for use in and around the Wrigley Field skyboxes.You can see the rest of the posters here and here.


One of hundreds of seats at Wrigley Field without obstructive view.

"The Cubs new January schedule means plenty of available seats for the entire family"

"For the low cost of your first-born, you can reserve a season ticket at Wrigley"* 
(*additional seats require additional children, children must be in good health and vaccinated)

Nice find!

So I imagine the line-up looks like this:

DH Fukudome
LF Patterson
1b Lee
3b Ram
CF Edmonds
RF Ward/C Soto
C Soto/RF Ward
2b Fontenot
SS Theriot

That looks like an outfield that can turn some outs into doubles.

Theriot also a benchwarmer, as the line-up is:

DH Fukudome
LF Patterson
1b Lee
3b Ramirez
RF Ward
CF Edmonds
C Soto
2b Fontenot
SS Cedeno


SS Cabrera
C Jackass
LF Quentin
RF Dye
DH Thome
1b Swisher
3b Crede
2b Ramirez
CF Wise

I dont understand playing Ward in RF or giving Cedeno a bat.

  • Apparently it was greedy agents who kept pushing the envelope and teams backed away. He then fired his agents and by that time the landscape had changed. The July push had passed and teams were willing to be patient.

    As far as what happened to the Giants' deal, I don't know. But perhaps he looked at the two rosters and realized the Cubs had the better chance of winning going forward. Maybe the Cubs swooped in and gave him $500,000 more and he bit. I don't know. What I do know is he signed the day after the Cubs won the wildcard game rather impressively...

  • That's great to hear AZ Phil. If anyone should know, it'd be you. You've witnessed the transformation first-hand on a daily basis!! Thanks for passing that along and confirming what has seemed quite evident from afar!

  • Lester didn't have much movement there in inning one. Doubt the long break between starts helped him. Rizzo popping out way too often the last 6 weeks. 22 pitches for Lackey through 2.

    Tough start.

  • For Quintin to be in the team (should they get past the Cards) maybe a pitcher gets the axe.

  • if the cubs make it past STL (and molina behind the plate) it'll be interesting to see if they find a home for q.berry on the roster as a running substitution tool.

  • RHP Jason Hammel replaces OF Quintin Berry on the Active Roster, as the Cubs go from 10 pitchers in the Wild Card game to 11 pitchers in the NLDS. 

  • the story checks out.

    also, i agree.

  • So all this business about Maddon being an old Cards fan and Arrieta being in Matt Carpenter's wedding... I have really strong feelings about this stuff. I'm not sure if I really enjoy it or really despise it, but I feel strongly about it...

  • Joe.

  • Today's Loss puts new meaning into their national anthem: O Canada

  • LaTroy does what he's always done best, blow games on the line. Still breaking management hearts at age 42.

  • I'm sure Fox is thrilled with the ratings potential of a Rangers + Astros ALCS. Ha.

  • LaTroy is going to LaTroy

  • I am remarkably calm about today's game. Not that I am expecting to win, but that I have no expectations at all either way.

    If the Cubs game goes to 14 innings, I will no longer be calm.

  • TEX/TOR in the 14th inning, stuff.

  • Yay! KB at 3B!
