Outside The Confines: So what ELSE happened this week?

The Cubs news was the biggest, but there were a few other stories out there.

The biggest news of the week so far has been Cubs-related, so of course a lot of the discourse out there right now is about the decision of Theo Epstein to leave the Cubs a season earlier than expected. That story, naturally, has been covered in depth here already and this links post is about everything BUT the Cubs (okay, unless it’s about Fergie Jenkins), so we won’t be talking about the Theo Decision here today.

What’s left, of course, is more discussion about Kim Ng, the announcement of Mike Clevinger’s Tommy John surgery, and a lot of discussion about free agency.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster. Make it so.
