Cubs Farm Club Offering Lebron James “Ring” Night Promotion

Like I said after the NBA Finals ended, Lebron James and the Miami Heat aren’t “lovable losers” like the Chicago Cubs. This June they were simply “losers” to the Dallas Mavericks.

And even though the Cubs are in the midst of their 103 year rebuilding plan, their single A affiliate, the Peoria Chiefs are having some fun at the self-ascribed “King’s” expense. This past year “taking my talents to South Beach” was the most overused cliche among phrases relating to an American city. Now the expression synergizes with another phrase “will it play in Peoria?” relating to an American city.

You know how much minor league teams love their silly, publicity-driven game promotions? Well, here’s a doozy.

Given the way the current Chicago Cubs season is going, it’s never too early to start thinking about 2011, 2012 and beyond. And one name sure to be in the mix on those future rosters is current Peoria Chiefs infielder Logan Watkins. Baseball America ranks him as the 9th best prospects in their minor league organization. He’s currently hitting just .252, but did make the Midwest League All-Star team in the first half.
