The Wild Things continue to assemble their roster for spring training. On Tuesday, they announced the signing of two position players, outfielder Matt Fleischman and shortstop Mike August. Fleischman has one year of pro experience and August is a rookie.

Fleischman played in 17 games last summer for the Long Island Ducks of the independent Atlantic League. He batted .238 in 42 at-bats. Fleischman played at Villanova University, where he had a .312 career batting average and 13 home runs. As a senior, Fleischman was named All-Big East.

August played junior college baseball and then one season at Millersville University, where he finish fifth in the PSAC in batting (.379) and second in both runs (50) and hits (75) and fourth in RBI (44). He also stole 14 bases in 15 attempts. He was named to the All-PSAC East and All-Atlantic Region first teams.

I see nothing to get excited about with these signings.
I'm not going to let anything about what the Wild Cubs do to get me excited until I actually see real results on the playing field.
How much do you suppose they will charge for a hot dog in 2013? You know they are going to have to pay for all these super high quality players they had fished out of the woodwork.

Wild Things just hired Bart Zeller as Hitting Coach. Again, a classic steve zavacky job. Hires a guy because of what he looks like on paper. Not thinking is he a good leader or can he lead a team in the locker room or any thing.

I read today where the Wild Cubs signed a 71 year old bench coach.
Why in the world would he want to ride the bus and hang anound a lot of 20+ years old?
Maybe he can teach them how to apply for SSI!
