I figure there are a number of you who have this same "my dad was a Cub fan, taught me everything I know..." story. One day, probably still a long time from now, we'll be able to write a different joke without the sarcasm.
Okay, probably a long, looooong time from now.

Arismendy Alcantara (Iowa): I feel like I have much more #want than Soler, but he's got some serious #rig and a big ceiling. I think I'm a better bet to reach mine though. Any chance I'm a better pro? How do I fit in this crowded infield in three years?
still hope they add Bailey or Hanrahan
I liked Hanrahan when he was healthy. He was really good in 2011.
Hanrahan went down before Bailey. Hanrahan's surgery was an elbow, TJ and Flexor muscle origin repair, which means he's unlikely to start the season on time although because he's a reliever he might have a shorter down time than the usual 12-18 months.
I'm always surprised how many millionaire athletes choose the alcohol, possibly believing that they don't have to pick one or the other. In some cases, they seem to be right. See: Mantle, Mickey, and Cabrera, Miguel.
