I’m going to return to a piece of sports news that just became official this week.

The Cubs are moving their low-A Midwest League farm team from Peoria to Kane County in suburban Geneva.

Sure, I’m sad for Peoria and Pete Vonachen, made famous by Harry Caray’s frequent references to him. But this makes too much sense to pass up.

The Cubs, who have placed their entire emphasis on the future in the Theo Epstein era, will now give their Chicago fans a chance to glimpse that future on a regular basis at lovely nearby Elfstrom Stadium (please don’t call it Fifth Third Bank Ballpark).
