With all this talk about Cub prospects and their service clocks, I couldn't help but think about mine.
My grandfather was a Cub Fan.
Passed down to my dad, then on to me.
So I figure my service clock started in the early 1900s.
Do I get to be a Super 2?
Do I get Free Agency?
DO I GET TO SIGN SOME LUCRATIVE CONTRACT?
It wasn't like I had a choice, man.
I WAS FREAKING BORN THIS WAY.
My clock's been going for over a hundred years.
I guess I can wait another year (or so) til Kris Bryant is ready.
I guess Javier Baez could use a little more seasoning.
C.J. Edwards, go ahead and eat.
Get some meat on your bones.
I'll still be here.
Whoever's reading this will be too.
And, you should read this Cubs article by Rany Jazayerli over at GRANTLAND.
