Anthony Rizzo Says He’s Going to Steal One on Willson Contreras This Weekend

Chicago Cubs

Tonight, at Yankee Stadium, the Chicago Cubs will face old friend Anthony Rizzo for the first time since he was traded last July.  And Rizzo has just one thing on his mind: speed.

Specifically, he wants to steal a base off of Willson Contreras so that he can have some bragging rights:

That is hilarious and perfect. Willson might throw the ball 115 mph to second base.

In all seriousness, that is not the only thing on Rizzo’s mind going into this series, I’m sure, but it’s definitely the funniest thing. And it’s also the vibe I hope permeates this series. I just want some fun.
