ANAHEIM, Calif. – The debate will continue inside their draft room because the Cubs don’t have an easy, obvious answer for the No. 2 overall pick on Thursday night.
The main crosstown takeaway: It just doesn’t have the same buzz.
Cubs executives Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer will be evaluating talent instead of going into full acquisition mode.
The Cubs draft pick of the moment is San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, the Hey, why not? move they made in the 43rd round in 2009.
Its getting harder to see the Cubs making any made-for-TV moments or generating much controversy this winter, which is exactly how this front office likes to operate.
