DateQuestionAnswer
2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Tidbit from an article on the Cubs' bankruptcy filing: "Luis Vizcaino, a pitcher who played briefly with the team in April, is listed as the fifth-biggest unsecured creditor, owed $500,000, according to the bankruptcy filing. The Cubs said other players are not listed as it is assumed their claims will remain with the team after ownership changes." Any idea why Vizcaino in particular would be an unsecured creditor?
(rowenbell from Oak Park IL)
He's a released former employee, as opposed to a ballclub? I'm probably the last person to ask, since I'm somebody who has to pay somebody else to do my taxes. (Christina Kahrl)
