Floyd Sullivan of ChicagoNow has made a deliciously hilarious discovery. One of the murals the Cubs have painted on the walls of Wrigley Field to celebrate the park’s 100th anniversary — Charles Lindbergh visiting a Chicago ballpark in 1927 — is actually a picture of Lindbergh at Comiskey Park. Go read his post about it, as he has photographic evidence showing how he figured it out.
In other news, whoever is in charge of the murals at Wrigley is probably not answering his phone today.
(I first saw this story at CBSSports.com)
Craig Mish of Sirius XM reports that the Twins have signed Fernando Rodney to a one-year, $4.5 million contract.
Rodney, who will turn 41 before he season begins, went 5-4 with a 4.23 ERA and converted 39 of 45 save chances last season with the Diamondbacks. For his career he’s sitting on an even 300 saves over the course of 15 big league seasons in which he’s played for eight different teams, four of which lasted a single season or less.
The Twins make number nine.
