Earlier this week, I broke down the wish list of the Chicago Cubs infield. Now, it’s the outfielders’ turn – and they’re asking for quite a bit heading into 2019.
The holiday season is one of my favorite times of the year. Really, all that matters are holiday season and Chicago Cubs season – who needs the four ‘official’ seasons of spring, summer, fall and winter?
I can remember getting my presents on Christmas morning and lining up all the packages. After lining everyone’s packages up, I would count them all to see who got more. If someone got more, then I would look at the value of my presents to see if Santa was fair in his dispensation of gifts. Santa always seemed to be pretty equitable across the board as I have never had to file any complaints with the North Pole.
This year, the Chicago Cubs pitching staff and infield might be comparing some gifts of their own with their outfield teammates. Why? There are some high-end, high-priced talent on the shelf out there, ready for delivery.
If the Cubs outfield could ask Santa for some gifts this year, what do you think they’d be seeking?
