  I was thinking of waking up early again to go uptown and watch the morning session where they were discussing the various prospects in the farm system, but when my iPhone went off at 7 AM I threw it across the room and then woke up just now.  I’d Continue reading Cubs Convention 2012 Wrap-Up: Screw This, I’m Going Back to Bed
