Good news! I’m back and nuttier than ever, and I’ve got some catching up to do. If you will indulge me today, I would like to comment on some things that were in the media while I was otherwise occupied. I promise to keep it short and focused.
According to Ken Rosenthal, the Cubs are now “in strong pursuit” of free-agent utility infielder Daniel Descalso.
So, who replaces Brandon Hyde in Chicago with his likely departure? The short answer for fans: David Ross.
For the Cubs, they neither traded nor signed anyone, making the Rule 5 Draft almost something to behold- hey, at least they signed prospects this week.
