Addison Russell, Kris Bryant, Jorge Soler and Kyle Schwarber.
I've never seen anything like it.
4 rookies starting for a winning Cubs team with a legit shot at the playoffs?
If you're a Cub Fan, you've never seen anything like it either.
And with the exception of Soler, each one can play a couple different positions.
Although I hope Kyle Schwarber keeps learning and ends up behind the plate because his personality is like... he's the kid among kids, but you can sense his leadership on the field.
Or "presence", as Bryant called him.
Or "catcher", as he'd like to be called.
And getting to meet them for the first time as pros and watching them grow, it's got to be Theo's dream, right?
Can you be any more emotionally invested?
I mean, I feel like I've been included in this team since The New Regime arrived.
It's been as transparent a process as I imagine it can be.
Friday was pretty sweet beating Shelby Miller and the Braves 5-3.
The back to back RBI doubles by Bryant and Montero were particurlary spectacular.
And today it's Supertough Dan Haren (did you see that rocket go off his shin last time out?) vs. mystery rookie guy Williams Perez.
Hey I'm getting kinda good at the watercolor portraits, no?
