“Unleash The Hounds, Smithers”
There’s a lot of excitement being built up for tonight’s matchup with the New York Mets.
This man. Anthony Rizzo. We’ve talked about him constantly, but in a season filled with struggles, this is the guy who can lead the Chicago Cubs into the promised land. No pressure.
The Cubs are quietly filling the organization with the “Youth Movement” Darwin Barney, Starlin Castro, Tony Campana and now Anthony Rizzo. Next up is Josh Vitters.
Sure, it’s not a shoo in for the World Series, but Theo Epstein has a plan. Everyone can see it as he stands, arms folded in the GM Suite high above Wrigley Field. Surveying the field. ‘Unleash the Hounds, Smithers.” Smither’s of course, is Jed Hoyer.
Anthony Rizzo hitting .345 with 23 homers and 62 RBI’s in Iowa.
Anthony Rizzo. Aquired in the deal that sent Andrew Cashner to the Padres.
Anthony Rizzo. the future is now.
It’s time to smile Dale.
