I know this is usually Calcaterra’s beat, but as someone moving in a couple weeks and currently trying to rent out his house this is also suddenly an area of interest for me too.

Alfonso Soriano’s old condo in Chicago has been on the market since September and the Chicago Tribune reports that he finally sold it … for $2.9 million.

According to the newspaper he originally bought the 3,828-square foot, 44th-floor penthouse–with two parking spaces!–in 2006 for $2.65 million and listed it for $2.95 million now, settling for slightly less after leaving it on the market for nearly six months.

On Monday, the Brewers unveiled a familiar logo and new jerseys to help celebrate their 50th anniversary as a franchise. They kickstarted it with a video:

Then they showed various members of the club, including Ryan Braun and Keston Hiura, modeling their new uniforms, which featured the familiar ball-in-mitt logo.

The Brewers are not the only team to to back to a classic. The Padres are bringing back the brown as well. Two very good choices.
