The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

John Mulaney has a stand-up bit about getting excited to go to McDonald's on a road trip as a kid, then his dad ordered one black coffee and drove away.

McDonald's alignment chart is a meme going around. I just lazily copied in the five or six Cubs I still remember where they seemed appropriate.

Rizzo is also in the graph, but he's completely covered up by Kris Bryant so no one can notice him.

Today is the 6 year anniversary of the Rizzo trade. It's fun to remember that Fielder and Pujols were free agents that offseason.

Yeah, I didn't want the Cubs to go after Pujols or Fielder either. That trade looks even better because of the team friendly extension he agreed too as well.

Sadly, I also remember how highly I thought of B. LaHair and how acquiring Rizzo might create a logjam at 1B lol.

Don’t know who these guys are or who they are replacing (if anyone) but good to see we continue to keep most of the FO intact





Edit: The Harris dude is apparently the bread eater, lol
