As the Yu Darvish saga continues to unfold, the Cubs are expressing disbelief that the pitcher's history of arm issues could have somehow been an indication that he might have similar troubles after joining the team this winter on a six-year, $126 million free agent deal.
Cubs’ second baseman and bat-flipper extraordinaire, Javy Baez, needed to be restrained by his teammates in the locker room after getting into an altercation with a mirror when his reflection looked at him the wrong way.
“I guess it’s cool to tell people I pitch for a Major League team, but I feel like a lot of people don’t even know the White Sox are still around,” said Rondon as he stared longingly at the Charlotte Knights Facebook page on his laptop.
"We had a nice lead early and Jonny [Lester] needed to calm down a bit," said Contreras, "so I did what good catchers do and visited my pitcher as often as possible in the first inning."
The Bears have made their first big off-season headlines with the expected free-agent signing of Allen Robinson from the Jacksonville Jaguars. Bears GM Ryan Pace said the team plans to have Robinson play "wide receiver," which is an innovative new position the team just discovered.
"It seemed like the nice thing to do," said Cubs skipper Joe Maddon. "I mean, hey, if the guy wants to swing by and take some BP, who are we to stop him?"
