I didn't watch, but it seems like from what you posted and David in the other thread, Mark Gonzales' camera is not the only thing out of focus. https://twitter.com/MDGonzales/status/1096500588320194560 well, he probably didn't have a script, but he was definitely coached and given some talking poin...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

championships it's all luck but it still comes down to championships for that word to be invoked. more than one. probably more than 2. the 90s yankees and the 2010s giants.

Re: 2019 Spring Training Thread

Russell sounds like he's reading the answers to every one of these questions like a robot, but he's directly answering questions from the reporters. He must've been coached on answers to almost anything he could possibly be asked.

Re: 2019 Spring Training Thread

Mna, it seems like pretty much everyone is there. Who have we not seen yet? Baez, Rizzo, Zobrist, Lester...Almora? I know Baez and Lester are for sure there, I am not entirely sure if the others are there but I feel like I did see Zobrist in some pics. Also: https://twitter.com/Cubs/status/10964602...
