What? Tony Campana had TWO stolen bases…in the same game? Gosh, I didn’t know he was a base stealing threat, does ANYBODY? Pretty soon he’ll challenge the awesome, defensive stud, super speedy Blake DeWitt for a roster spot??? Oh my, to have speed on the Cubs…the manager and coaches would be scratching their heads. Speed? Stolen bases? Late inning outfield defense? Huh….sounds right up the new regime’s alley, just wondering when they’ll deliver what they advertised.

Joey–Are we the only fans that see how Tony is a game changer?

At spring training Ted and Dale told Campana he would be up in the Majors soon again. I think they expected Byrd to have a better start of the season so they could trade him early and bring Campana back in.
