Cubs Bunting Tournament 2: Electric Boogaloo

In Commentary And Analysis by aisle42429 Comments

The 2013 version of the Cubs Bunting Tournament is rapidly approaching and the Cubs beat writers seem pretty psyched about it. Carrie Muskat, Paul Sullivan, and Jesse Rogers are all Twitpic-ing the shit out of the brackets they've seen so far this morning.

The first bracket is actually a play-in tourney for the 64th spot in the main tournament between some baseball ops, media relations and other front-office types:

The highlight of this side bracket is the bottom match-up:


Jed vs. Theo! Theo vs. Jed! How is this not on pay-per-view?!

We also got a partial picture of the pitchers' side of the bracket from Jesse Rogers:

I'm not sure when all the bunting madness begins, but rest assured, our crack OV team will keep you up to date as developments occur.

    @ Aisle424:
    No discrepancy. Just dial down what Sully said and you have the truth.

    Lots of ass-kicking by Theo. Jed is laying an egg so far.

    There. That’s what Sully meant, but he’s too fucking stupid to say it like that.

    What does it say about our team if members of the staff beat the players at any baseball skill, even one as stupid as bunting? Probably nothing that the presence of Dioner Novarro doesn’t already say.

    Why is Carlos Villanueva the only one with his entire name on the bracket?

    I told Villanueva-ey three years ago that if there was a bunting tournament, I would put his full last name on the bracket. Sveumy is just carrying out that promise.

    They couldn’t fit “Villanueva-ey” on the tournament card anyway

    Garza was throwing live BP to Soler, Baez and others. They loved it so much, they cut it short and he left with the trainers.
