The Father's Day Weekend Hangover
Let’t start by wishing all the applicable men out there a happy Father’s Day. I had meant to recap both Saturday and Sunday’s game, but sometimes, when you have kids, things get busier than you had planned. Such was the case with my weekend. Saturday I had a very important meeting during the day and then we went out as a family for a Father’s Day meal. Sunday I played golf, followed by 50 minutes of insanity workout. Before I knew it, the day was done and my body felt like it had been hit by a train. As a result, no recaps for you. Instead, I’d like to get some discussion going on a topic that has been on my mind lately.
Who is the Cub’s All Star Rep? – Based on where we are in the standings, it’s pretty hard to fathom having more than one representative in the All Star game, which lends itself nicely to the conversation on who the rep would be. Looking at the roster, you could make the case for four guys who have a shot.
- James Russell
- Kevin Gregg
- Travis Wood
- Scott Feldman
Raise your hand if you foresaw any of those names as potential all stars before the season started. If you just raised your hand, you’re a total liar. The fact is that the players who should be on that list (Rizzo, Castro, Samardzija, etc) are not. Take that as encouragement that this team is capable of more or as discouragement that perhaps some of the guys we’re counting on may not have as high of a cieling as we had hoped. Either way, who should the rep be, and why?
