Baseball is a sport filled with characters. There are heroes and villains, comedians and straight-men. Because of all the different types of men that populate the game, sometimes there are standouts you can’t help but love even on another team. I mean, even Javier Baez wanted to hug Nolan Arenado.
This week for our FanPost Friday prompt, we want to know which non-Cubs player is your favorite? Ideally they should have never played for the Cubs (which counts out Alex Avila for me). What first made you notice them? Why do you like them so much? Is it Charlie Blackmon for his deadpan humor? Mike Trout for his overall good-at-everythingness? Just let us know which non-Cub is a standout for you.
Head over to the FanPosts section and select “New FanPost” on the left, then confess your outside fandom.
