I was very happy to find out that Jose Macias is leaving the Cubs to play baseball in Japan. Macias was a classic example of how Dusty Baker likes to start useless veteran players.
Macias will be bating cleanup for the Nippon-Ham Fighters. At first I thought the team was from Nippon and the team name was the “Ham Fighters”. That would have been cool, but the team is from Nippon-Ham and the team name is the “Fighters”. That’s kinda lame. But I don’t care. I’m calling them the Ham Fighters regardless.
Go Fighting Hams!
