No, not Led Zeppelin. My gifts to you:

From Comcast Sportsnet Chicago:

  • Can Jason Heyward handle the pressure of the largest contract in Cubs history? "Every time money comes up, I feel like the media talks about it way more than I'm thinking about it," Heyward said at his introductory press conference in Chicago last week. How the outfielder embraces the target will go a long way toward determining the team's success overall.

From CBS Chicago:

  • Bruce Levine: Is Dexter Fowler still a fit for the Cubs? "Judging by the moves made by team management so far this offseason, it would appear that the train has left the station without Fowler on board for 2016." But.
  • CBS Sports: Mike Axisa: Is this Sammy Sosa's final year on the HOF ballot? Pros and cons of the case for/against Sosa and his contemporaries.

From ESPN Chicago:

  • Buster Olney [INSIDER - $]: Ten most notable MLB stories. #2 is notable - The Cardinals versus the Cubs.
  • Jim Bowden [INSIDER - $]: Imagine the Cubs with Jose Fernandez. "...his trade value will never be higher than right now." It would likely cost Javier Baez and Jorge Soler, for starters.

From Cubs.com:

From Cubs Den:

  • John Arguello: A rivalry awakens: Cardinals grappling with Cubs' challenge to the old order. "By the time the playoffs came around, the Cubs were ready." No joke any more. Wait 'til next year.

From Bleacher Nation:

From Cubs Insider:

Food for Thought:

I like to give the gift of music for the holidays. The last three years, I've written one and performed/recorded three Xmas tunes. Here they are for your possible listening pleasure:

2015: Do You Hear What I Hear?

2014: Carol of the Bells

2013: Exmas

Thanks for reading, and happy holidays.
