Cub Tracks Adores Addison

New, comments

Everyone is talking about the Cubs' latest acquisition, Addison Russell. Come on in for more fawning, trade rumors, prospect reports, saying goodbye to now ex-teammates, the light at the end of the tunnel, All-Star berths, new opportunities, and the Pigeonhole Principle.

I expect the shockwaves from "The Trade" to ripple through Cub Tracks for at least a couple more editions.

  • Vote early, vote often. Anthony Rizzo needs your vote to get the spot in the All-Star Game that he deserves.
  • Trading away 40% of your starting rotation puts out a help wanted sign for arms. But the Cubs will fill the gaps from within.
  • John Baker had been the personal catcher for Jason Hammel. With Hammel off to Oakland, Baker's role will change.
  • Having "too many" talented shortstops just means the club has options aplenty.
  • Sometimes we forget this part. But Jeff Samardzija will be missed by his friends.
  • Dan Straily was the "third piece" in the trade. For now, the Cubs hope the righty gets locked in at Iowa.
  • A bit of bookkeeping, but the signing of sixth-round draft choice Dylan Cease is official.
