    Happiest off season I have ever had. Still pull up YouTube video clips of the Playoff run and World Series every few weeks and just smile..

    Landed bleacher seats for the Cubs-Dodgers day game on April 13th today via the Cubs website. Was a bit shocked to get through. Also heading to Spring Training the last week of March to take in two games at Sloan.

    This Cubs middle infield tandem is so nasty.

    I'd be ok with him being the 3rd catcher if his doctors are ok with it. Also wouldn't mind seeing him try first base whenever Rizzo gets a day off.

    I prefer save some for October instead of March.

    Eloy Jiminez hits a HR in the 8th to break-up a no hitter for the Reds. Seems like Jiminez, Happ, & Addison Russell are about the only ones hitting this Spring thus far.

    If I didn't know better, I'd say these Cubs have some talented ballplayers.
