Over the last 24 hours, Chicago baseball has found itself in the news for all the wrong reasons.
Let’s start with the Cubs.
The Cubs, for those who haven’t been paying attention up to this point, are awful. Despite the arrival of Theo Epstein and some delusions of grandeur heading into the year, Chicago’s worst sports team currently has a 25-48 mark and comfortably sits in sixth place in the NL Central. Naturally, they’re not going to making headlines for anything positive.
So, what’d they make headlines for?
Notice the nifty upside-down logo on Travis Wood’s helmet? Yeah, that’s about the only way his team will make the news cycle nowadays.
As far Chi-town’s other big name squad…they don’t need weird stuff to land in the headlines. With a 38-35 mark and a perch atop the AL Central, the White Sox are more or less sitting pretty right now. And yet, despite that, they’re still not content.
Realizing how dreadful they were at third base, management went out and brought in Boston Red Sox workhorse, Kevin Youkilis.
Problem is, they apparently don’t know how to spell his name.

Tough day for Chicago’s baseball teams.
One letter can make all the difference in the world.
