A few promising directions from the Cubs, and a few real bummers.

UP: Happy to see they have made a change in their Pitching Coach, as early runs allowed & (massively) blown saves were an issue. A handful of the bullpen remain, like Edwards Jr., and Hendricks is staying in the rotation. While many of the regulars around the diamond are still on-board...

DOWN: Sorry to see they dealt Tommy La Stella to the Angels. He never had a regular daily spot, but was literally a guy you could call with 10 seconds notice as a pinch-hitter, against anyone, and get a solid .290 effort, home or road. Such a solid, focused player. If you need a guy to get on base to extend your chances late in the game, this is your call. He's gonna be missed.
