NEW YORK – For all the talk about power hitters vs. power pitchers, the Cubs and New York Mets view players through similar lenses.
Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder watched the Cubs’ champagne celebration from a quiet, and relatively dry, corner of the clubhouse on Tuesday night.
Whether or not the Cubs got here a year ahead of schedule, they have a star manager, a dynamic lineup anchored by MVP and Rookie of the Year candidates and the hottest pitcher on the planet.
You could smell the stale booze from the top of the staircase, as soon as the clubhouse door opened to the media on Saturday afternoon at Wrigley Field.
Kris Bryant started playing guitar around the time the Cubs made him the No. 2 overall pick in the 2013 draft and immediately turned him into a face of the franchise.
