Chicago Cubs: The best bench for Cubs in 2017 is not what you think
Other than trying to pronounce his name, how can you not love Matt Szczur? All he does is come in when called, takes his swings, and works hard. He does not hit for power, but get the ball in play. That gives the Chicago Cubs a chance to score. That is all they ask.
This Spring, Szczur is proving his worth. Batting .353, he is a catalyst for the offense to this point. He scored four times, knocked in four more, and two of his hits are triples.
But, there is one major concern. The outfield is loaded. Is it possible that Szczur does not make the team? Yes. However, I think there is one way in which he has the upper hand. His character is stellar. He is a lunch-pale type player that comes in, works well with others, and does his job. Given a choice between him and La Stella, the Roman emperor gets my vote.
