Chicago Cubs – Who’s out and who’s in?

There you have it. The three players that would be saved by spring training 2.0. Wick, Kimbrel and Descalso. Two that I think are going to break with the club, one that isn’t. Cough, cough, Descalso, cough. But I’ll be honest? I don’t know what to think. Kimbrel, the savior of these three, has had his ups and downs. Did I mention he had knee and elbow inflammation?

Wick? Bad start with the Padres. Nice start with the Cubs. So what now? I mean, he’s hit or miss–literally. And Descalso? Unless he gets his stuff together? He won’t make it. Now I’m not saying he’ll give up. That’s not how ballplayers do. But he’ll be DFA’d if he doesn’t.

dark. Next. Someone will win second base

There’s a lot more than those three. And likely I’ll put out the next three on my list. Let me think about that.
