I'm still waiting for the punch line. OK, I checked, it isn't April 1st. You're serious? I kept thinking this is some sort of twist on Zell telling him to be careful what he does with the Cubs and Wrigley {no matter who owns it} Field.
What's in a name? In some cases it would appear to be just about everything - if only in the translation. A rather apt name of a Cubs' player all the same.'Fukudome'- cute.

At least Fukudome doesn't seem to be a prima donna. Even if he is, we couldn't understand him anyway.

Will one of you please spell it out for me phonetically??

Fans getting "Exited"?????? Where did they exit? Oh, I would think you meant excited....but I wouldn't expect anything less from a Sox fan. Guess they don't teach spelling on the south side, only how to run out on the field and beat up old men.
