    Give Greenberg another at-bat !

    I was unaware of this story until today, I think it is a cool idea:

    http://www.thestar.com/sports/baseba...ne-more-at-bat

    Adam Greenberg got beamed in the back of the head in his only career at-bat, leaving him with a concussion and vertigo. 7 years later he is back with the Cubs organization, and a fan has started a petition to try and get Greenberg, now 31, at least one more at-bat with the major league club.

    Yes it could. They actually might win a game and lose a spot in the draft order.

    I think it's a neat publicity stunt, but I don't think there is any chance it actually happens.

    He should face Clemens in his only at bat in the last game of the season (Astros vs Cubs)

    Technically he hasn't has first first at bat yet. Nice 1.000 OBP though.

    not sure how much notoriety he has, I don't think many people have ever heard of him?

    Glad the Cubs said no. Feel bad for the guy, but last check, we're a semi-major league team and not a publicity stunt.

    I say why not. Cubs could make up some merchandise for the guy, sell the crap out of it, and make a cool story with a better ending.

    It's pretty embarrassing to have your team give a 31 year old rookie an AB just for the hell of it.

    Can you imagine in one of the Rangers loosing seasons if they, for example, raffled off an AB just for a few bucks? It'd be the laughing stock of the league. While this isn't a "raffled off" AB, it's also the equivalent of a worthless AB and just giving one away for the story/money.
