I’m not really enjoying Cubs broadcasts these days. I can’t seem to get into the new team. I’ll admit that Kasper and Brenly need time to gel. I couldn’t stand Chip Caray in the beginning. I warmed to him as time went on. But it’s also safe to say that he improved vastly; even more […]

A look at the 1st round picks of the Cubs and Sox since 1990 from the AP. The number is their first round slot; h-from high school; c-from college.
