As we strain for baseball amidst a national pandemic, and the sad potential reality of a lost season, whom amongst the Chicago Cubs have played their final game in Wrigleyville?
It is a strange question to ponder, especially since baseball is currently not being played due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus. The possibility of a lost season. The chance that new faces in new places will never see the light of day beyond spring training.
For the Chicago Cubs, this means a world where some guys have, honestly, played their final game on the Northside of Chicago. No, Kris Bryant or Willson Contreras do not immediately come to mind, and, frankly, the debate on either guy holds little credence.
Many who are most eligible are seasoned veterans, fringe guys of sorts. The guys who last season carved a role and found their way into a lineup; however, they do not hold much leverage moving forward. So, the question remains, who will not be donning the blue and white pinstripes when baseball returns?
