Could the Cubs win 90 games and still be sitting home in October?
HAZLETON, Pa. – Not even Joe Maddon can talk his way around this. Not when the Cubs just dropped $272 million on Jason Heyward, Ben Zobrist and John Lackey.
Just a thought: Could all this media speculation about Jason Heyward be a strategic way for the Cubs to drive up the price for the St. Louis Cardinals?
A banner week for the Cubs ended with three of their cornerstone pieces showing up in the National League MVP voting, yet another sign of the franchise’s resurgence.
Joe Maddon checks all the boxes for the Cubs, the free agent who lived up to his contract and already feels like a North Side institution after one unbelievable season.
