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

V.

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.

  • Ach - I really only saw it quickly and thought that's where it it. No matter - he crushed it and the video board people did not have to repair the panels from what I saw!

  • Totally agree with that re Soler, whereas Bryant seems to get the close call (so far) this year.

    Good to see Baez get a couple knocks today - been awhile

  • I was there. From what I saw it was upper third of the scoreboard

  • No I have been thinking actually that he seems to lead the Cubs with balls called strikes all year. He really shouldn't be expanding his zone to swing at many of those either because it wouldn't lead to anything good. He's seeing the ball well though so hopefully it'll even out.

  • So why don't the umps like Soler, or am I just imagining it?

  • Projected at 461 ft, with a 108 mph exit velocity - longest Cub HR this year by 20 ft (I think Arrieta had the longest?)

  • this team is full of horrible walkup music...rizzo uses 'marky mark and the funky bunch' more than he should...which is any at all.

    d.ross uses alphaville 'forever young' because lulz.

    lastella was using (still might be) 'oh what a night' by the four seasons.

    turrible turrible stuff.

  • Just noticed that Baez's current walk-up song is "Informer" by Snow. Dear God. That's world class bad.
