With one day away from Opening Day, the Cubs haven’t settled on second base. I’m giving the nod to Darwin Barney. Blake Dewitt has more experience, but I think putting a rookie on Opening Day will send a message that the Cubs aren’t going to rely on experience to win ballgames. Take a chance this year. Expect the unexpected and add other cliches.
Tomorrow is going to be exciting. One day away. My jersey is hanging, creases out. You know what? It’s not really as much about the game as it is about a new season, new dreams and a chance for the title.
Opening Day is also about the end of winter and celebrating the “Boys of Summer”. It’s about families and about that”pop” of the bat as the ball flies over the wall.
I hope the Cubs have fun this year, I hope every team plays hard and players remember why they started playing the game. I hope rivalries bring out the best in every player.
I hope the Cubs win the World Series.
