ST. LOUIS – As the Cubs continue their turnstile approach to the roster – Darnell McDonald in, J.C. Boscan out – it shows how much they need their core players.
Logan Watkins didn’t recognize the number from an incoming call Saturday night, so he didn’t answer his phone.
Junior Lake had his second four-hit game yesterday in just 16 big-league games, the first player to do that since the Cardinals’ Bo Hart in 2003.
It might have seemed a bit strange to hear Anthony Rizzo say the Cubs were shut down by the Dodgers on Thursday. After all, the North Siders did hit four home runs.
The Cubs dream about the day when they are buyers, not sellers, feeling the energy when a new player walks into the room instead of watching teammates pack their bags and say goodbye.
