From Comcast Sportsnet Chicago:
- Jon Lester delivered for the Cubs. The lefty had a very good season. It was a little up-and-down, and he is not completely satisfied, but it's a good start.
- Javier Baez expects big things in 2016. It was a tough season but the young infielder is hopeful.
- The Cubs have unfinished business. World Series contender isn't enough. Theo Epstein has done quite a bit, and now the hard work begins.
- Jake Arrieta is known for his arm, but he's a Gold Glove finalist.
- Jake's beard had to go, though. I'll miss it. How about you?
- Willson Contreras hasn't forgotten how to hit. He homered in an AFL win.
From ESPN Chicago:
- Jesse Rogers--Trade Schwarber? Not a chance. Sensible.
From the Chicago Sun-Times:
- ESPN personalities play dress-up. As Joe Maddon, for example.
- Alex Gordon to the Cubs? It's rumored.
- John Arguello has more about Alex Gordon and the AFL. Interesting. Cubs are reportedly on Gordon's list.
- Peter Gammons is reported to agree about Gordon. Now if only Gordon agrees, in writing.
- More about Contreras. He's everywhere!
