I don’t want to sit here and say bad things about the Chicago Cubs. The franchise has been through enough without me piling on with my pithy dismissals. But when they go and do something like try to sell a folding chair New York Yankees pitching phenom Masahiro Tanaka sat on, I have little choice.
I mean, what type of organization does this? Did they run out of game-used Lou Piniella pants to hawk? Did each and every Andre Dawson Gatorade cup dry up?
What’s next? Peppering Wrigley Field with lame advertising?
As of this moment, the bidding is up to $260.
Imagine how much money the team’s going to make when they find the chair Derek Jeter sat on.
