With former Chicago Cubs catcher David Ross dancing his way across the stage on DWTS, it’s up to Willson Contreras to step into that role. The relationship between him and Jon Lester will be vital to the Cubs success.

Chicago Cubs‘ starter Jon Lester hasn’t always had David Ross there for him. But he’s been a big part of his career. Now the Cubs will turn to Willson Contreras as Lester’s new batterymate. As he develops a rapport with Lester, the two should become a critical piece of the Cubs success this season.

For gamers, the release of Sony’s MLB The Show is the pinnacle of the baseball season. From online play to Road to the Show where you start from the ground up as a minor league player, the detail they put into the game is fantastic. As the Cubs are the World Series champs, how well are they rated? Who’s the No. 1 Cubs’ player in the game?

When it comes to leaders of the free world, there are many people that come to mind over time. Ghandi. The Pope. Queen Elizabeth. And Theo Epstein. Wait..what? That’s right. Forbes magazine named Epstein the “World’s Greatest Leader” for his ability to lead the Cubs to their turnaround from baseball’s “lovable losers” to World Champions.
