Can’t believe Corey Patterson is back with the Cubs.
After being dumped by Seattle this week, Patterson opted-out of his contract to become a free agent.
Lo and behold…the Cubs came calling with a minor league contract for the 30-year-old. What on earth is Jim Hendry thinking?
He has 30 plate appearances total in the last two years…good for a .133 avg. with Washington and .073 avg. with Milwaukee.
I’m truly confused…what exactly must Patterson do not to be given a contract? The guy doesn’t hit…doesn’t get on base…doesn’t improve.
And yet, Corey somehow hangs around the game…still has believers…still gets chance after chance to prove what? That he’s not a MLB material? Astonishing!
“We’re not after his bat, we’re after his glove,” “our outfield defense is thin, [Patterson] will help that,” said Hendry.
If it wasn’t for April Fools’ Day…I’d be handing in my Cubs card!
