Yeah, who knows what was really said from the bleachers and what wasn't. I've sat there and have never heard anything offensive. Nevertheless, guys like Hawkins, Jones and Bradley were all some of the biggest raging A-holes in the game regardless of color or anything else, they just were big time ****** bags. It's too bad we had that string all together like that. Hopefully Jackson has a good and productive career here and doesn't instigate anything. Then things may change.
Cubs fans and media have a very checkered past few decades with non-white players, at least.
So does Cleveland and they are not on his NT list. So I doubt that's the issue.
I still think the Cubs inclusion on Upton's list is random. The Cubs are the only NL team he would not accept a trade to? please. I understand why he doesn't want to go to Seattle (what elite hitter would), I can understand Boston (Upton does not seem to like Boston, as he once remove the Yankees and replace them with BoSox on his NT list), hell I can even understand Toronto (have to pay two taxes), but why the Cubs? I have not seen or hear any reason for his inclusion of the Cubs. The Cubs inclusion just seem too random to me.
It doesn't really matter, as I think he'll end up in ATL.
