It’s still hard for me to envision hockey in the south. Although not a great NHL fan, I was hoping the Predators would hoist the Cup. They would’ve if they didn’t have to play in Pittsburgh.
The Chicago Cubs recently promoted Ian Happ to play with the big boys. Another young future star in my opinion. He’s a perfect fit for Coach Maddon. He’s versatile, can play infield or outfield, has power, and is a good fielder. Just another young talented prospect on a team laden with future, if not already stars. What a dilemma for the coach. Who, when. and where to play all these guys.
After evaluating the current starting pitching corps, as well as the roller coaster bullpen, I feel a trade for pitching is in the cards. With all this talent, someone will no longer be a Cubbie. I hope it isn’t Ian Happ. He is fun to watch.
