Hopefully, that reliever is more Jesse Chavez and less Brandon Kintzler.

The rust for Nico isn't surprising. That was a really horsefeathers outing for Steele though.

He starts talking to Nico Hoerner at the 19:26 mark in the podcast.

Nico says he feels great and is fully healthy now. Cubs have him doing pilates. He sounds really confident and is up for moving around and playing different positions.

Not Cubs related, but if Nate Pearson ends up being really good and Alex Lange & Brendon Little disappoint I'm going to be pretty pissed. Too early to know what will happen and pitching prospects are fickle creatures.

Still, 100 is 100:
