Yankees caught a break last night with an out of shape looking Schilling serving up batting practice for A Rod. But tonight the Yanks have to attempt to survive on the pitching of called up minor leaguer Tim Redding. IIRC Redding got in some work with the Padres where he performed poorly. Will he make it past 2-3 innings tonight against the Sawx?!?

Cuban can't discount notion of owning Cubs

July 15, 2005

BY CAROL SLEZAK SUN-TIMES COLUMNIST

Cubs owner Mark Cuban.

It has a certain ring to it, don't you think?

Cuban, the Dallas Mavericks owner, will play the role of guest conductor during the seventh-inning stretch today at Wrigley Field. But in the future, he conceivably could play a much larger role in the Cubs organization. Or so Cubs fans can hope.

Cuban is a born-and-bred Pittsburgh Pirates fan, but he knows a good investment when he sees one. If the folks in Tribune Tower ever find themselves in the mood to talk sale, Cuban would listen.

"The Cubbies are such an institution, if they became available, it would certainly be exciting to consider,'' he said via e-mail.

Of course, it is merely a notion at present. But who knows what the future might bring? The forward-thinking Cuban, who made his fortune from the creation -- and subsequent sale -- of an Internet broadcasting company, typically is a step ahead of most sports executives. For instance, Cuban recently made headlines after broaching the issue of advertising on NBA jerseys on his Web log at www.blogmaverick.com.

"Commissioner [David] Stern and the NBA have made a significant investment into making the NBA an international league,'' Cuban wrote in May. "Starting with the Dream Team in 1992, the visibility and popularity of the league and our players have exploded. Hundreds and hundreds of millions have watched our games in China. Our games are shown in more than 212 countries. Our merchandise is sold around the world. We are probably the second most popular game around the world, behind only soccer.

"What the NBA doesn't have at this moment ... is a way to sell all of those fans and eyeballs to international companies that market globally.''

The answer, Cuban says, is to have companies pay a huge fee to have their logo stitched onto NBA uniforms. And why not? When Spanish soccer club Real Madrid invades Soldier Field on Saturday, its players' jerseys will carry sponsorship logos. And both NASCAR drivers and their cars brandish sponsor logos.

"Putting a logo on our jerseys is the way for us to open the door to every major international company who may only do limited business in the U.S. to become a customer of the NBA and its teams,'' Cuban wrote in his blog.

When asked about the possibility during the NBA Finals, Stern said he "didn't doubt'' that it would eventually happen. When Cuban and Stern, who have famously feuded, feel similarly about something, you know it's only a matter of time before that something becomes reality.

(According to Cuban, he and Stern are getting along famously these days. "If both of us weren't already happily married, we would probably date, things are so good,'' Cuban said.)

Asked if the NBA would beat the NHL, NFL and Major League Baseball to the punch on jersey sponsorship, Cuban said whichever league "has a customer offer an eight-figure commitment first'' will become the first major U.S. professional sports league to go commercial. But he estimated that jersey sponsorship is five years away.

"It takes a while for advertisers to decide to spend that much money on something new,'' he explained. "If someone walked in tomorrow and offered $10 million a year, it would get done.''

As recently as 10 years ago, the idea might have seemed abhorrent to many sports fans. Since then, fans have grown accustomed to seeing sponsors' names attached to nearly every segment of TV and radio broadcasts, in all sports. Baseball is one of the worst culprits, with sponsorship attached to seemingly every pitch of every game.

And let's not forget signage, which has grown to monstrous proportions in stadiums, arenas and ballparks across the country. By comparison, a corporate logo on a uniform might seem tasteful.

Speaking of good taste, when asked if he was familiar with Jeff Gordon's seventh-inning stretch performance, Cuban replied, "I know the words.''

Cubs fans expect nothing less from any potential owner of their franchise.

I'll gladly take a 5 run 5 inning performance from Redding.

As much as I love Cuban and think he's the best owner in the NBA, he'd be absolutely terrible for the Cubs and I'm pretty sure everyone in Chicago knows it. The things that work for basketball do not necessarily translate well to baseball. Cuban might be able to do something interesting with the Devil Rays or some other crappy franchise, but messing with the Cubs would be a hard sell.

The points that folks are missing on Redding:

a) He has sucked this season, therefore the Ted Lilly phenomenon will very possibly take hold.

b) Redding is not nearly as terrible as he has been this year. Inconsistent, yes, but there was a time when he was the most highly touted arm in the Astros system. And when he has had quality starts, he has been damn good.

Of course, that could be the pessimistic Sox fan in me, but how many sub-par starters can you watch mystify the Boston line-up?

I just think that it's going to be a long weekend. *cries*

Yanks have pretty much no pitchers. Musina, their most consistant guy went last night. Tonight we get Redding (oh boy, this should be interesting) then a disappointing Randy Johnson, then...who knows for Sunday? Wang is probably hurt worse then initially thought, could even be gone for the season. Pavano's return will be a couple more weeks now they are saying, and Kevin Brown is still out too.

Dealing for Colorado's head case Shawn Chacon is not the answer I feel. And Al Leiter?? Well fine if they want ot give him a shot, ok, but lets not get our hopes up.

Fantasy dilemma: I've got Barry Zito pitching against Kenny Rogers tonight. Should I gamble and start one over the other, or start both and hope one gets a ND?

I say the Yankees should sign Leiter. Yeah he sucks but they do need an arm out there and they need someone that can pitch 5 innings a start, just to keep the other pitchers from tiring out. Hopefully, Chacon can help in that aspect too.

I was going to start both anyway, since I'm behind in IP thanks to all my injuries.
