  • Luke discussed his first day in Iowa taking in the Cubs, meeting up with other BN’ers, and swooning over Des Moines.


  • The Cubs, for a brief moment in time, were the best team in the National League over the past month.

  • I wonder about a scenario in which it actually could make some sense for the Cubs to pursue a David Price trade.
