Twelve Days Revisited

The New Year is only a week away, the Cubs Convention is just around the corner and before long pitchers and catchers will be reporting to Fitch Park in Mesa. The coming weeks should see Jim Hendry make a few signings, or a trade or two, to tweak out his roster. With the recent announcement out of the Bronx, the next month figures to be very active throughout the game.
