With the recent misadventures of Jorge Soler, something that's been yelling from the back of my brain got louder.
How did Dexter Fowler come back to the Cubs?
I mean, I know how he physically came back to the Cubs, but how did that even happen?
One day Jason Heyward was going to play center and then there would be some mix of mostly Kyle Schwarber and Soler and pretty much any combo of position players (except Anthony Rizzo) to cover left and right.
Then I got a message on my phone saying Fowler came back.
Like a cartoon stork dropping off a baby, they left out the part that happened behind closed doors.
All the players went wow man Maddon and Theo, those guys really got me.
Camp never missed a beat and there Fowler was, an actual center fielder, playing center.
Now Jason Heyward, an actual (maybe the the best in baseball) right fielder, gets to play right.
And left field is nothin' to worry about.
Or I guess... before Fowler came back, 2 of 3 outfield spots occupied by such youthful inexperience was exponentially worse than just 1.
When Fowler returned, the outfield got about a billion percent better.
Jake Arrieta's blister.
Don't freak out.
