The Cubs' 400-Pound Wrigley Cake Is Sitting In A Dumpster Right Now

To celebrate Wrigley Field's 100th birthday yesterday, the Cubs commissioned "The Edible Confines," a 5'x5', 400-pound cake version of Wrigley. It took four bakers six days to make.

The Diamondbacks Will Wear Kansas City Throwback Uniforms

Look at that. That's a damn fine uniform. Unis from a century ago were usually pretty great—white or gray, high socks, uncluttered chest logo, and my favorite, logo-less caps. The Diamondbacks will suit up in these bad boys next Wednesday, and they're going to look great, but it's more than little weird that… » 4/18/14 1:55pm 4/18/14 1:55pm

If The Chicago Cubs Want Their Big Renovation, It's Time For Them To…
