I mean, we all knew the Cubs would pick up Anthony Rizzo's 2021 option, but still...
The only thing certain during these weird-ass times is a lack of certainty.
Around here, my wife set up a Covid-proof front door candy dispenser - a tube going thru the mail slot we can slide mini Snickers through.
But no idea if any kids will actually be going around trick or treating.
Usually on Halloween, the doorbell rings for the 50th time and I'm eye-rolling.
I'll be SO HAPPY if someone comes to the door just for normalcy.
Anyway, the Cubs also declined on Daniel Descalso, duh, but Jon Lester's a way different thing.
The Cubs declined his option ($25 mil), but Lester says he still wants to be a Cub.
You love him, I love him, Theo loves him.
The Cubs will still pay him a $10 mil buyout, but he also "could return on a lesser deal".
He's a proud man, and a straight shooter - I bet if he feels he can still contribute, he'll be back.
I have no idea how many Rizzo paintings I've done over the years, but I really really like this one.
I've been asking people - if you go to Wrigley, would you rather see a 400 foot homer or a spectacular defensive play?
I'm all in on defense, and Rizzo's just so SO good with that glove, a joy to watch.
I AM SO FREAKING HAPPY THAT RIZZO WILL STILL BE OVER THERE AT FIRST BASE!
So nice to have good news.
