Until the top prospects hit Wrigley Field, there is nothing to take the focus off Starlin Castro and Anthony Rizzo at the big league level.
Less than six months after his last at-bat in the big leagues, Eric Hinske is joining the Cubs as their new first-base coach.
If a baseball team is a family, then would that make a manager the patriarch?
If that's the case, the Cubs should feel even better about new skipper Rick Renteria.
Anthony Rizzo isn't Steve Francis, but his nickname might as well be "The Franchise," just like the former NBA player.
