Cubs

The Cubs created great expectations for Jorge Soler and gave him a nine-year, $30 million contract in the summer of 2012. On Monday, he lived up to his expectations in his Wrigley Field debut.
The LLWS is over for Jackie Robinson West, but the Cubs hope this momentum doesn’t fade away once Chicago Public Schools are back in session on Tuesday.
Kyle Schwarber has lived up to the expectations as the No. 4 overall pick in this year's MLB Draft. But Jed Hoyer and the Cubs still want him to learn the fine details of being a full-time catcher.
