The 12 Days Of Cubs Winter

Sue Skowronski

The snow is falling on Wrigley Field, the Winter Meetings are over, and we are less than two long, cold dark months to "pitchers and catchers" (the most hopeful phrase in the English language). To get us through the bleakness of the offseason, BCB's Danny Rockett has composed a Cubs holiday classic. Enjoy!

Let's face it. A few years ago, when the Cubs began their rebuilding plan, there was hope that after a couple of years, the team would be looking to make a splash in the free agent market say around….now. Unfortunately, for us fans, that off-season looks like it's a few years away. However, the Cubs have made some moves, a new manager, some bullpen help, and an almost entirely new coaching staff. Bust out the champagne!

To help you keep track of it all, and to fight the good fight in the "War on Christmas", I've written new lyrics to a familiar holiday melody. Sing Along!!
