The world’s most delicious concoction? Also: minor league baseball stuff.
Another day, another shutout by the Giants. At least Edwin Jackson looked sharp (his line notwithstanding).
Edwin Jackson hopes to help the Cubs win a series against the best team in baseball.
It doesn’t sound like it’s going to happen now, as details get in the way.
Is there going to be trade interest involving Edwin Jackson? If so, should the Cubs jump at it? I’m not so sure it’s an easy question.
The Cubs project to have the renovation/expansion/development completed before the start of the 2018 season.

The Cubs are expected to start work on the new clubhouse very soon, and the added outfield signs don’t look too bad.
Occasionally, Cubs fans do get nice things. And it’s nice to be in a position to wonder which player is hotter, Baez or Bryant?
