Over the past few blogs we have talked about the lack of depth in the infield for the Chicago Cubs, and how that is going to be a big problem moving forward in the 2013 season.. Ryno4ever started taking a look at how the roster currently breaks down. If you Continue reading Who is the Best Choice For the Cubs 25th Man?
Nobody blames you if you’ve tuned out of this Cubs season, but here’s the setup…in last night’s game against the Nationals, which ended with another beatdown and a series sweep at the hands of the best team in the majors, there was an incident. Let’s look at what transpired.
