He certainly was last night. Also, love for Kyle Schwarber and Chris Coghlan.
That was 452 feet of lulz.
Bet you didn’t guess that would be his first hit. You did? Oh. You’re so smart.
Medina, 26, was the return in the Welington Castillo trade, and he’s got big upside.
Pretty good match-up for the young lefty, too.
The Cubs are still convinced that Schwarber will catch at the big league level in his future. Well, beyond last night, I mean.
Plus an update on the Cubs’ bonus pool situation, which is looking pretty good so far.
The Cubs haven’t looked particularly good following a day of rest this year. It’s strange. Also: how was the strike zone last night?
It might be but a short visit, but it’s going to be fun. And Schwarber can actually help, too.
The next big Chicago Cubs prospect is on his way, perhaps much earlier than folks expected. It says a lot about the Cubs, and about Kyle Schwarber.
Imagine if this crowd were celebrating a Cubs World Series victory. I’m not sure we’d survive.

Good news on Ramirez, Olt, and Turner, and updates on the rest. That makes it sound like the rest is bad news. It’s not. Just updates.
Byron Buxton and Francisco Lindor are both on tap for the Cubs this week as they break into the big leagues.
That’ll save the Cubs more than $350,000 to be used elsewhere in the draft.
Two games in a row, Castro played hero.
It was a good weekend on the field for the Cubs, and there’s plenty that you may have missed.
