Cubbies Crib: Morning Marquee 10/16


The Chicago Cubs 2003 season reflection is now in the rear-view for the Cubs faithful after “5-Outs” aired on CSN Chicago last night, detailing the season that was. The managerial search is at a standstill for the Cubs as they wait to meet with Tampa Bay Rays Dave Martinez at the end of this week. Cubs prospects are continuing to shine in the Arizona Fall League including Kris Bryant, the number two pick in the 2013 MLB Entry Draft, who was named the AFL Co-Player of the week.

In postseason baseball, Matt Holliday lifted the St. Louis Cardinals to a victory and a 3-1 lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League Championship Series. Mike Napoli’s solo home run gave the Boston Red Sox a 1-0 win and a 2-1 lead in the American League Championship Series. Joe Kelly and Zack Greinke take the mound as the Dodgers face elimination while Jake Peavy and Doug Fister take the mound in Game 4 of the ALCS. Cubs’ Kris Bryant named first AFL Co-Player of the week
