Share Button

Cubs fans seem pretty okay with their team tanking to get where they are because it’s indistinguishable from how they were run for 100 years I saw this sentence over a week ago and it really stuck with me. It was one of many interesting things that popped up in Continue reading Does it matter how the Cubs got here?
