Cubs

Arismendy Alcantara's stay with the Cubs was only supposed to last a couple days. But the 22-year-old is showing the Cubs why he deserves to stay in the big leagues instead of heading back to Iowa.
Anthony Rizzo might have jokingly referred to his fracas with the Reds on Thursday as a Final Vote promotional stunt, but his manager likes that he stood up for his teammates and thinks the first baseman has what it takes to be a leader.
While the Cubs sound ready to finally get their Wrigleyville renovation project going, chairman Tom Ricketts says the team has yet to set a groundbreaking date.
