Chicago Cubs News: Grimm’s future, Dawson returns to Chicago
The Chicago Cubs’ Justin Grimm might not have any control over his future with the team. And the Cubs welcomed back a legend to the organization in Andre Dawson.
For the Chicago Cubs‘ Justin Grimm, his time may be running out in Chicago. Once a reliable late-innings reliever, Grimm hasn’t been able to replicate his numbers. It appears that someone in the organization feels he deserves another chance, but that might not be up to him. Depending on what the Cubs do with free agency in the bullpen he could be one of the few on the move.
Derek Jeter is cutting ties with everyone in the Marlins organization it seems. Andre Dawson will join the Cubs, although his role is not officially been determined. Personally, I bumped into Dawson years ago at Midway airport following a series against the Marlins. He was gracious enough to have a short conversation with me before taking a picture with me. He’s a classy guy that the Cubs will be happy to have back at Wrigley Field.
With the Park at Wrigley completed, the Cubs will continue their Christmas celebration at Wrigley. Known as Winterland at the Park, the Cubs will have a skating rink, a German-style market called Christkindlmarket, as well as a tree lighting ceremony. The Park at Wrigley will allow the Cubs to expand their Christman offerings, which will include movies at the park and wreath making which are in the works.
