I don't even see him.

EDIT: Oh [expletive], he cut his hair. I see him now. I thought that was John Lester, until I spotted John Lester, so... I'm kinda with Derwood on this one.


Who is John Lester?

Also, holy [expletive] you guys are terrible at recognizing people's faces.


No they're not.....shaved head Travis Wood looks stunningly like Lester in that shot. I did the same thing and didn't realize who it was until weis' post.


Or you just are too. I did not confuse any of those guys.

Go on with the "not a robot" copout

I'm mostly interested in the business panel today. Don't expect to hear anything we don't already know at the others.

Yes, though I guess I missed the fact that Sandberg was back in the org

I got to ask a question about Baez in cf in the coaches panel. Joe thinks I'm witty. I can die now.

I was mad that the CSN camera didn't capture the interaction between the 2 when Martinez was going down the line greeting the former Cubs.

Yes. Grimm is also a doppelganger for Bryce Harper.

It was a little old lady with lots of stuffed animals pinned to her hat. Don't judge her too hard. Theo was great about it.

trying to figure out who the dude with his face covered is

Is that Brody Stevens in the bottom left corner?


He's friends with catching coach Mike Borzello, he was at the celebration for clinching the 2nd wild card

That is delicious. I kind of spaced on it when Sandberg was introduced, but it all came rushing back when they said Dave's name.

It seems obvious, but if you don't already know it, you can find lots of Cubs content on MLB.com just by searching their videos page.

Lots of Cubs Convention stuff from today and yesterday.

Hoyer basically comments that the 2015 team kind of bullshitted and magicked their way to 97 wins, and that this roster is more complete and more capable of dominating. Its just fun to hear that dominance is in mind after years of Lovable Losing and some totally-not-tanking.

Separate vide but sounds like they have no clue wtf Schwarber will end up doing either. He's as cheap as possible, young, healthy, and can mash. There's as many as 3-4 years to find out, I guess.
