Hello and happy Monday, Bleed Cubbie Blue readers! As it is Thanksgiving here in Canada, I’m going to keep things short and sweet on the intro today so that I can run off and enjoy turkey and consume my body weight in mashed potatoes. But before I do that, in earnestness, I wanted to let you all know how incredibly thankful I am for all of you who read these posts that Josh and I trade off doing and that you get some enjoyment from the links and social media posts we collect for you.

Fair warning as we head into these, about 99 percent of everything being written right now is being written about the postseason. I always try to find some non-postseason content, but it’s obviously a little tricky.

With that said, on to the links!
