Great moments in team merchandise: Chicago Cubs edition

I don’t spend a lot of time clicking around MLB.com’s online store, but Desipio does, and he (it?) found this:

And even better than the look is the price: $139.  Really. One hundred and thirty-nine American dollars.  If I was an eccentric millionaire I’d buy 20 of them and make the staff wear them as a lark, but I can’t see why a sane person in need of a button down shirt would wear that, let alone pay $139 for it.

UPDATE: There’s a Phillies version too.

Andrew Miller leaves game with a bum hamstring

Indians reliever Andrew Miller left last night’s game against the Cubs with left hamstring tightness.

Miller threw just two pitches before clutching his leg and leaving the field. He’s day-to-day for now — and manager Terry Francona noted that he had a similar injury a few years back and only missed a few days — but hamstring injuries can be anywhere from annoying to serious, so nothing definitive will be said by the club until he undergoes an MRI. Given how critical he is to the Indians, who are likely postseason bound, figure that the team will err on the side of caution with a DL sting regardless.

Miller has yet to allow a run in ten innings of work.
