The Cubs are fined a whole lot of money

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on July 23, 2008

A 100 years of disappointment and no title apparently led the Chicago Cubs preparing for the future while violating a couple of baseball rules.

Those rules include failing to report a signing to MLB’s New York offices and putting the player on the field before receiving approval for the signing from MLB offices.

The Cubs’ fine for these violations is around $500,000. (snicker)

Apparently the MLB higherups apparently didn’t believe Cubs people were completely forthcoming regarding their actions in the case when questioned about them.

Baseball disallows teams from making pre-draft deals, but it isn’t known whether such an early deal is related to this case. However, the amount of the fine makes it clear how displeased pissed off MLB”s powers are about the situation.

For some reason I hate this team.

    Speaking of baseball.and bobbleheads…
    you know, South Park’s version of Canadians!!

    BALTIMORE — The Blue Jays’ hitters have only been able to bail out the club’s pitching staff on a handful of occasions throughout this season. For the most part, adequate run support has been sparse.

    On Tuesday night, Toronto shook off that trend and helped overcome a subpar performance from Shaun Marcum, who was making his first start in more than a month after suffering a right elbow injury. The Jays’ offense shined on a sweltering Baltimore night at Camden Yards, en route to a 10-8 victory over the Orioles. -By Jordan Bastian / MLB.com :)

  2. Of course Toronto is still below .500 & 9 1/2 games back. :)
