How come I feel so good about this Ed Howard kid?
The Cubs #1 pick of 2020 is a local highschool kid from Mount Carmel, that's why.
I always wished former local stud OF Curtis Granderson woulda somehow ended up playing at Wrigley.
Because he was local AND good.
And Howard checks the good box too - he was widely regarded as the best shortstop in the draft.
Crazy for a hs kid.
So very cool there, Mr. Epstein and Mr. Hoyer.
As far as the rest of baseball?
The owners... it's like they're pretending no one can read.
The silly sliding pay scale based on how many games but stays the same proportion no matter how many.
So much damage to the game over relatively nothing.
The Commish guarantees baseball this year.
