Cubs

The Cubs bullpen blew a four-run lead in the ninth, but Starlin Castro's walk-off single in the 11th gave the Cubs the type of win they weren't getting in years past. Is this a trend in the making?
After Kris Bryant went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in his first big league game, baseball's top prospect was 2-for-3 with and RBI and three walks in game No. 2, quelling any worries that he's anything but as advertised.
The debate raged all during Kris Bryant's minor league tenure about whether he'd be able to stick at third base. After a dazzling defensive debut, what do the Cubs think of Bryant's fielding future?
