Who’s On First?

I know that I’ve been remiss in my postings lately, but I had to put this one out there for my buddy Jeff, who’s a long-suffering fan of the Chicago Cubs

According to this story in the Boston Globe, an independent league baseball team in Illinois is putting the lineup card in the hands of its fans.

Unfortunately for my buddy, that team is not the Cubs. The Schaumberg Flyers announced Tuesday that the public now will be determining the team’s batting order and pitching rotation. Decisions are set via Internet voting. The fans’ first move: to override manager Andy McCauley in his choice of one position player. Eventually, fans will be able to decide who should be traded, too, the story said.
