Cubs still in on Aroldis Chapman

In Commentary And Analysis, News And Rumors by dmick89

I’ve assumed for some time now that the Cubs weren’t really all that interested in Aroldis Chapman.

Kris Bryant is good at sports

In Commentary And Analysis by dmick89

A little over 3 years ago the Cubs drafted Kris Bryant with the 2nd pick of the 2013 First Year Player Draft*. He was considered either the top prospect or close enough to the top that few teams, if any, would have passed on him given the chance to take him that high.
