  • Justin Grimm has looked fairly impressive out of the bullpen and could making a case to be a late inning reliever next season. This despite getting lost in the shuffle with Kyle Hendricks and C.J. Edwards being more highly regarded prospects acquired from the Rangers.
  • (Video) Speaking of Hendricks, Dale Sveum has been impressed with the pitching prospect.
  • The team is looking for a rebound season from Anthony Rizzo.
  • MVP candidate Andrew McCutchen believes the Cubs should stay the course. Of course, the cynical among you might think that's just to make life easier for the Bucs.
  • The Cubs' recent draftees are pitching in, boosting the organization's future outlook.
