You Call This Progress?

This was a throw-away news item Friday, lost in all the NFL playoffs and Roger Clemens talk, but the Cleveland Indians announced that they have reached a 16-year, $58 million dollar deal with Progressive Corp. to rename its 42,000-seat ballpark after the car insurance company. Don’t ya just hate that? Anyway, the former Jacobs Field will be officially named Progressive Field when the Tribe takes the field in 2008. I know. I know. This news has nothing to do with sports and weather, but it does give me another opportunity to display a photo of the snow-out at The Jake back in April. That reminds me: Pitchers and catchers report to spring training in a month.
